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.

July 9/0929 days old.

These little ones got bigger every time we went. Beautiful plumage and more independent all the time. Here one fledgling is enjoying a real good preening.
Nest #2. Parent birds just did a trade off of duties. Both incubate the eggs. This pair sat for 51 days before they finally abandoned the nest. Young female,unexperienced and the male was missing a foot. Not sure the reasoning,but eggs were not fertile. When they abandoned the nest,the female actually stood by nest #1 fledglings for a bit. Their mom had already left. So she took on the maternal duties there and the territorial battles subsided as well.
You can really see this fledglings adult plumage coming along .
This was before the nest was abandoned so still some issues here amongst adult birds.
A rarity. All 4 fledglings together at once. A beautiful sight.
