l have been a part of a few successful wildlife rescues and educate people on wildlife and environmental issues. We have helped in issues to save wetlands, woodlands etc.to save the precious life within. It is well worth the effort. We can all learn to live and work together. Education is the key. In 2011 I won an education award from Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority for the work and photography I do. Habitat is fast disappearing and with it, many species are also declining in numbers. So many species can actually tell us the health of our environment and alert us to problems we need to know about. They all need to be protected.

Shrike verses Cardinal Jan 25

I had a visitor the other day that decided he wanted one of my cardinals for breakfast. My husband was on his way to work and as coming around the corner startled the shrike that was busy plucking out the feathers of the poor cardinal. It let the cardinal go. Long story short. The cardinal got to safety and the shrike came back 3 times to the same branch were he had left the cardinal. Cardinal although rather shocky after his ordeal, was safely tucked into a cedar by my back deck. Shrike finally moved on and after an hour or so. The cardinal finally flew off. What a way to start the day. Cardinal almost looks as if it had a tear that froze beneith its eye. It was bitterly cold.And there I was standing out there taking pictures in housecoat and slippers.
