A good friend of mine Beryl, set this trip up to Algonquin months ago. We stayed in Whitney over night. The food was great,the company a lot of fun. It was really a great group of mostly new people for me. Weather could of been better. BUT. Could of been worse too. We hired a guide ( Kevin Klute ) from Friends of Algonquin. Highly recommended. He took us out on a wolf howl first night. No wolves but the presentation before the outing was fantastic. A lot of information on the Algonquin Eastern wolves. The fact that they are either getting ready to or have had their young right now ,they would not jepardise the pack to answer to another strange pack,US. However. It was fantastic just the same,and the group did a bang up job. Kevin was terrific. Met him the next day for a day of birding and what ever else we could find. We were very lucky. Right off the bat we got our male spruce grouse. Which would not have happened if it weren't for Kevin. We had a bit of heavy rain here and there. But we were all mostly ready for it. So most of us kept on lookin for those birds. Gray jays are on nest right now so none of them this time. But we heard boreal chickadees,saw yellow rumped warblers,ruby crowned kinglets and more.Lots more. It was well worth the trip wether it rained or not. Algonquin is such a magnificent place that what ever the weather you are bound to get some good wildlife to look at. It is full of the most breath taking scenery anywhere,the wildlife is magnificent and the air is fresh. We saw 4 moose. Magnificent creatures. The only complaint I have about this trip. Is that I wished I could of stayed longer. So for the next few pages you will view what I took on my tour around Algonquin Park. A place I will never get enough of. The most peaceful,magical,quiet yet alive with the songs of many birds and the tapping of many woodpeckers. The rain falling through the trees hitting the leaves on the wet ground. I can't think of anyplace I would of rather been. Although these are not all of my shots. I picked the best to share. Enjoy.
