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.

Backyard funnies

This was April 19th and we still had a bit of snow from the day before. My white throated sparrows juncos and more were getting extra food to get them through the last snow storm hopefully of the season. So I would just open the front door and throw out some seed. Well the birds were not the only ones taking me up on my offer. They were acting a bit skittish when I noticed a fresh hole. They kept checking it out. The junco went right over to it. It was so funny. Then the birds scattered. And this little nose appeared. Then a little head and slowly a body. A little chipmunk had made a new hole and was coming for the fixins I threw out on the lawn too. It really was funny. The morning doves were preening their oh so beautiful feathers. Everything is so much more colorful at this time of year. Although I hibernated inside most of the day. The bird watching was fantastic.

Snowy owl surprise May 1st 2014

While out yesterday I luckily came across this beautiful female snowy owl. She had caught a bufflehead duck and was mantling over it. Having a good feast lasted her all day. She had moved on over night. And while photographing her I noticed she had a radio tracker on her back. Probably one of Project Snowstorms snowies. Was so totally amazing to see her at this time of year.
