Day 3, Orchard Oriole, Pt Pelee

Day 3, Orchard Oriole, Pt Pelee
I don't know if anyone is able to identify this small bird. I have been searching on Google and can't find anything that looks like it, with yellow underparts and a black throat. I'm beginning to think that maybe it's not a warbler of some kind after al…

Common Nighthawk / Chordeiles minor

Common Nighthawk / Chordeiles minor
Woke up an hour before my alarm clocks went off, after just three hours' sleep, so thought I would quickly add one photo. Just checked the weather forecast for today - a high of -2C (windchill -8C), wind 37km/hr with gusts of 52 km/hr, and snowing. Do I…

Day 3, Northern Parula / Setophaga americana, 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. Will have to work on this in between an absolutely mammoth clearing-out of my home, partly because of the mouse/…

Finally, I am getting back to sorting through and editing my photos…

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.…

Harlequin Duck male

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 num…

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.…
