For the Birds: Early Birds

Good Sunday to you!

On such a gloomy cold spring day, I decided to cheer myself up with going through some of my photos that I took in March & some in April.

I chose my favourites and thought I’d share them with you.  Most of them were taken in Ottawa.  A couple of them here in my own neighbourhood.  I marked each photo with the location of the bird.

Below, you will find a few photos of a ‘lifer’ bird for me.  They are of American Widgeons. They are ducks that found their way to Mud Lake, in Britannia, during migration in the fall.  They are pretty little ducks and were quite the celebrities all winter long.

Until next time, Happy Birding!
