A breathe of fresh air in my life this morning, this little fellow has just left the nest and was taking short flights down to my bench, up to the arm rest, then the back and up into the tree, hope he makes it. His mother swooped down at my a dozen times, I am sure she hit my hair a few times, she was ticked!!
As some of you may have heard on the news, Northern Ontario, Timmins and Kirkland Lake have a major
problem with forest fires at the moment. We have one huge one, south of us, 30 km. appr, from town, but so many camps and cottages in its path, it is over 30,000 hectares. Timmins is in a state of emergency, today finally promises to be a little cooler, less winds, so hopefully the crews will get a handle on this nightmare. We have all been holding our breath, many evacuations also. It is the worst fire in Canada and the worst for a long time.
I do have some pics to post when things settle down, but for now this one put a smile on my face this morning. We are all praying for rain....
