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.

Family of Eastern Kingbirds on a sailboat. June 19/10

Got a call while we were out in the boat to go see a nest. It was on the end of a sailboat and they wanted to ID the birds. So on our way back in we checked it out. These hatchlings looked not to old. And they turned out to be Eastern Kingbirds.
4 wee ones in the nest right at the bow of the boat.

Apparently this pair has nested on the bow of this sailboat for the last 3 years. And the owners think it's great. They wait until the young have fledged before they do any boating. l would say this pair has picked the right boat to live on. But what a strange place to build a nest.
