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.

These 2 mallards decided to take chase while a swan was being tagged. They put on quite the show. Water splashing everywhere.

Bathing trumpeter cygnet.

This cygnet was just banded and tagged. It went back to it's family and then decided to take a nice long bath. Was so cute.

On arrival you see a large number of swans and mallards out on the bay. Quite a site to see.

Came upon this blue phase snow goose on our way out. It was sitting with the Canada geese and scaup.
l guess this little mallard got to close.

Thousands of scaup out on the lake and a few sleeping swans amongst them. Getting dark and was so quiet.

Was getting late in the day and there were literally thousands of these scaup out on the lake.

Here is a beautiful little hybrid mallard that was feeding with the others. Very pretty bird.
Feeding frenzy, a few birds to the right of me flew as l was taking this photo. Making a very interesting shot.
A trumpeter cygnet.
Adult trumpeter with a feather cluster sticking out f it's mouth. It got rid of that as soon as it stuck it's head in the water.
Another swan with a rather crooked mouth. Must be a story behind that.

What a beautiful face.
A mallard on a rock. With all this water around. He was eating the snow and quite enjoying it.

Looks like these 2 are greeting each other after a long absence.
A trumpeter anxious to get back to the family after being tagged. Absolutely no worse for wear.

Swans n mallards.

There were 200 approx swans and as many mallards. It was pretty incredible to see the swans in the midst of all these feeding mallards.
Hey you got some for me!!
