As it turned out the sun came out, and a great day was have following Great Horned Owls around. The Humber Arboretum has proven to be an excellent place for... Continue Reading →

Barred Owl in Guelph

Today I had a nice and also lucky outing at Guelph Aboretum. I've read reports the past few weeks about a Barred Owl being spotted in the area and after failing to locate one in another park after at least 5 visits, I thought I'd try Guelph today. A number of birder/photographers were walking around... Continue Reading →

Some of the attached photos were created with HDR processing and Luminosity software for HDR.... Continue Reading →

Catching up with the marsh

The birds in this post have been nesting on my laptop for a few weeks and I'm finally getting around to sharing them. Over the Canadian May 2-4 weekend I managed two trips to Tiny Marsh and I must say, it was probably the best birding I'll do all year! Tiny Marsh is my go-to... Continue Reading →

Great Day at Tiny Marsh

This post is from last weekend, when I had yet another excellent outing at Tiny Marsh. If you follow this blog you know I love heading over to Tiny Marsh in Tiny Township. I visit the marsh in every season but spring is by far the most exciting time to go. Even before you see... Continue Reading →
