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.

A nest that has been dug right up to. Exposing the nest. l hope they had gone before it was dug out. They seem to have a very long tunnel to the actual nest. But the young disappear and hide when people are around. Possibly giving the impression they are gone. A stop work order on this soil pile should have been done. Maybe keeping it closer to the main building instead of quite the distance away. Possibly keeping the birds away from the human activity. It is so sad.

August,7/09 Update.
l called the place were this soil was and the manager didn't realize these nests were there in the main pile of soil. So she assured me the workers would all be briefed on this and the young would be left along to fledge. Which won't be long. She was very good about it. So l don't know how many may have been lost,but these will be spared.
Bank swallows almost ready to fledge.
These bay bank swallows were in a garden centers soil pile. l think many have been wiped out from what l can see. These are almost ready to fly.
This cute ground hog was enjoying the day, but to close to the road for my liking. Don't see many of these cute things any more with development the way it is going. l myself really enjoy seeing a ground hog at the side of the road or in a field. So cute,so innocent!!
