Day 3, Daffodil (or Narcissus?), Pt Pelee, Ontario

It was lovely to come across a clump of these Daffodils (or Narcissi?) growing wild at Pt Pelee. Bright and cheery, and sparkly - and, unlike the warblers, stayed still and close! Finally, I am getting back to sorting through and editing my photos from a trip with friends to Pt Pelee in Ontario, and Tadoussac in Quebec. Will have to work on this in between an absolutely mammoth clearing-out of my home, partly because of the mouse/mice that have totally stressed out and drained me for the last seven or so…

Day 3, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Pt Pelee

A very poor quality photo, but I thought it was just too cute to delete. I had such a difficult time spotting any kind of tiny warbler in the first place, let alone getting any photos! Finally, I am getting back to sorting through and editing my photos from a trip with friends to Pt Pelee in Ontario, and Tadoussac in Quebec. These four photos were taken on Day 3 at Pt Pelee. Photos taken in the morning were during a tour with Tom Hince, from 6:00 am to 11:00 am - so many birders on the trails! Funny how…

Day 3, Large-flowered Bellwort / Uvularia grandiflora, Pt Pelee, Ontario

Finally, I am getting back to sorting through and editing my photos from a trip with friends to Pt Pelee in Ontario, and Tadoussac in Quebec. These four photos were taken on Day 3 at Pt Pelee. Photos taken in the morning were during a tour with Tom Hince, from 6:00 am to 11:00 am - so many birders on the trails! Funny how so many birders are very tall people, so I often could not even see anything. I try to post in more or less the order in which my images were taken. I have a lot of images that I wan…

Day 3, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Pt Pelee, Ontario

A terrible quality photo, but it does show the longish tail of this little Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. I had such a difficult time spotting any kind of tiny warbler in the first place, let alone getting any photos! Finally, I am getting back to sorting through and editing my photos from a trip with friends to Pt Pelee in Ontario, and Tadoussac in Quebec. These four photos were taken on Day 3 at Pt Pelee.

Yes, it's the American Dipper again

It is rarely that I get to see an American Dipper and especially this close, so I just wanted to add the somewhat better captures to my albums. Everyone found this encounter exciting, even more so as there were four of these birds hanging out together. Three of the photos posted this morning were taken on 28 October 2018, when a group of 15 of us went south of the city on a birding trip to one of my favourite areas. This included Chain Lakes and Pine Coulee Reservoir. I just love some of the landscape…

A view from Chain Lakes

Three of the photos posted this morning were taken on 28 October 2018, when a group of 15 of us went south of the city on a birding trip to one of my favourite areas. This included Chain Lakes and Pine Coulee Reservoir. I just love some of the landscape through which we drove - barren, rugged, middle-of-nowhere kind of scenery. It looks so different in each season - I think my favourite time of year is when there is a covering of snow on the empty hills and ice on most of the water. I've still not had t…

Harlequin Duck male

Taken at Focal Length (35mm format) - 2000 mm, but at least I got it : ) Not the best photo, but I rarely see a Harlequin Duck, so this was a happy sighting. On 17 October 2018, I managed to get over to Carburn Park for a walk. Though I have seen a number of Rusty Blackbirds, this species was still a bird I wanted to look out for. As it turned out, this was not one of my finds. However, I saw a few other things that were a delight to see, including meeting two Ferrets that were out for a walk (or rathe…

On the way to Chain Lakes

Licorice Allsorts (candy) eyes

This morning, my appointment to get two cortisone injections in my knees has just been cancelled and rescheduled for Monday. With a temperature of -9C (windchill -13C), I wish that meant I didn't need to go out in the cold and clear the snow off my car. However, I have a few errands that I really need to run. On 17 October 2018, I managed to get over to Carburn Park for a walk. Though I have seen a number of Rusty Blackbirds, this species was still a bird I wanted to look out for. As it turned out, thi…
