With the mild weather we have been enjoying for the last few days the birds have been very active. There are numerous large pine trees in our neighbourhood and when I look up at the top of them a crow always seems to be perched there. I took this photo in our backyard.
It does make me a little nervous all this mild weather. Are we in for a doosy of a March??
Bonus shot here. I thought I was just getting a shot of the Cardinal and didn't notice the Goldfinch until I downloaded the photos.
Making headway into the suet.
You were right Granny Marigold! When I posted a photo of this birdhouse a week or so ago you mentioned about the squirrels chewing it. This one was busily at it a few days ago.
Another gorgeous sunrise on Sunday.
The mourning Doves are an everyday visitor now. So glad!
Monday morning we headed out on our loooong walk (9km or around 6 miles) as it was so beautiful out. We stopped off at a small park and I saw swans way out on the ice. I wasn't venturing out there so I zoomed in the best I could.
The beavers are gnawing the trees. This one was too far gone and needed to be cut down.
The park people are attempting to save this one.
Looks like some more squirrel gnawing at one of several bird houses in the park.
There was a large flock of Canada Geese at the small pond in the "Active Lifestyle Community" we have here in Brighton. I didn't want to startle them so again just zoomed in with my little point and shoot. There must have been about 30 of them.
We hope to be heading out on a road trip on Thursday. It all depends on the weather. If we do I hope to have many great photos!
