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.

Spring in my backyard

This spring has been pretty amazing in my backyard. I have a pair of merlins nesting and a pair of red headed who are here every year came back together and have been mating ever since. I get a wake up call every morning around 6:30 from the red headed woodpecker drumming on our chimney. Northern flickers are dancing and carrying on and chickadees have picked a bird box on my sons shed to raise their family. Evening grosbeak A single female joined me for a couple days and a brown thrasher seranaded me for a whole day singing his heart out. It is pretty amazing and I dont need to or want to go far. Although the merlins will weed out our bird population. Life goes on and a beautiful new family will come into our world.

That's wonderful!! I was jumping for joy when our Orioles returned. Love Spring and everything waking up from the winter. If I had all the action you had going on, I wouldn't want to stray too far either. Enjoy! :)
