at Cedar Meadows Wilderness Park, here in Timmins, On.
These fellows are usually further back in the wooded area where they live, I took a drive by, the other day and caught this one lazing in the open near the fence. There were two of them and the other one was laying in the mud trying to get some relief from the flies. This one done his best to ignore me, I whistled, sang, yelled, it didn't matter, he would not look at me... :)
Mom had just flown off, when I arrived..this is on the 1000 Island parkway in Southern Ontario near Ivy Lea. This is an artificial nest platform that was installed years ago as part of the Osprey recovery program.
We seen many of these platforms a few years ago when we went out to the East Coast.
We have just spent 9 days, camping, in a few areas of southern Ontario, have some great pics to show you, will start with this fellow at our campsite in Parry Sound, On. One of my many favorite birds, so colorful and vocal...
The birds are loving my new birdbath, it is deep and I change the water every day, so I do have regulars who come and enjoy during this hot summer we are experiencing here.
Caught this fellow yesterday, taking a dip and giving me the 'look'...lol
your stomach"..my mom used to say this phrase to me when I would be wolfing down my favorite foods..did your mom ever say it to you?
Seeing this, yesterday, made me think about the phrase. It did give me a smile anyway.
While sitting on a park bench at our local Gilles Lake park, I noticed this seagull trying his best to eat this fish..it was kind of funny to watch actually..he did eventually give up and put his foot on it on the ground and continued to tear it into smaller pieces and ate to his hearts content.
