Happy Monday and Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all our moms out there! It’s finally beginning to feel like SPRING!
As I stated last week, I was looking for Sandhill Cranes…well, that very day I was fortunate enough to spot one in the very same location I spotted him a few days earlier. Unfortunately…they have been shy since. (photo below)
My good friend and I took a trip out to a Nature trail near Cobden last Wednesday and I was able to see the nesting pair of eagles there once again. Also, I am thrilled to announce they have hatched 2 chicks!
New to arrive in the area this last week, numerous varieties of Warblers, the Eastern Kingbird, the Green Heron, the Brown Thrasher, the Rose-breasted Grosbeak and one of my favourite little birds… the Ruby-throated hummingbird! My children bought me a beautiful new hummingbird feeder from the Gilligallou Bird Store in Almonte for Mother’s Day. I am hoping to attract more hummers to my yard. I am not sure if that’s possible as they are very territorial.
Please enjoy my photos of the last week or so. (There are quite a few today!)
Locations of sightings will be posted in the caption of the photos. If you have questions or would just like to comment, please feel free.
Have a great week of feathers and beaks! ~Cheryl
