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.

Harvest Moon,Sept 22nd,2010

Could not resist the magnificent evening this full harvest moon brought with it. The last day of summer and fall arrived at 11pm. I took these shots over Lake Simcoe and it was so pretty. I got a jet flying over in front of the moon. And I saw migrating birds crossing over it as well. Just amazing.
The other planet is I believe Jupitor or Venus. I used to be good at the planets but over the years I'm afraid I've slipped a bit.

Sept shots.

A couple teasers of my bald eagles. To see more please visit my bald eagle blog below on the right. An immature merlin makes a stop for a rest as the sun goes down. Was almost taken out when the eagles flew by her. She moved on to safer grounds.

Holland River Sept.2010

On a recent visit to the Holland River we had a little bit of action and some amazing clouds. Here a northern harrier female scouts for food and a pair of great blue herons take off into the sunset.(almost.).

Toronto birding. Migration .Sept.9/10

Here we have a great crested flycatcher,A kestrel migrating,a common nighthawk on migration,monarch butterflies on migration and a pear tree.

Red tail hawk.

This young red tail was bothered a bit by other birds on her flight past us. But she didn't seem to be bothered. And why would she. Here she is being harassed by a sharp shinned hawk. What a size difference.

Immature light phase red tail hawk

This beautiful red tail gave us quite the show at hawk watch. She soared and circled and gave us all the greatest look at her before moving on. As if she was enjoying her audience.

Hawk watch gang.

A beautiful young red tail hawk did quite a show for us this day. Morning coming in over a wetland . Ann & I taking a break,the gang on duty that day. Monarch's migrating over Lake Ontario.

People shots.

Ann and myself out in the weather. What an incredible day. A little wet at times as you can see. Keeping the cameras dry was a priority. But we did it. No complaints. Was amazing. Ann did a terrific shot of me while I sat on a piece of very spooky driftwood viewing my shots. It looks like the driftwood is reaching for me. Very cool.


A semipalmated plover, Baird's sandpiper,shorebirds in flight and Ruddy turnstone.

Shorebirds n harrier

This first bird I believe is a Baird's sandpiper,second is a ruddy turnstone and the last 2 are of a female northern harrier during migration.

Hawk watch birds.

We saw a lot of sharp shinned hawks and every now and again an altercation would arise between them and a smaller falcon the kestrel. In the last 2 photos we have a female northern harrier.
