January 10, 2010

Today Kate and I visited a few nearby birding areas. First stop was Lynde Shores Conservation Area in Whitby. This is a great place for kids, and we are two BIG KIDS!

Kate enjoyed feeling the birds pecking out of her hand.

From there we went to the nearest coffee shop to warm up! After that we went to Cranberry Marsh when several thousand Canada Geese were settling in for a rest. It seemed odd that they we sitting in the middle of a field but a local resident told us that there were coyotes in the woods that would come after them. Sitting in the middle of the field gave the geese a wide open area so they could see any danger coming a long way off.

We met a couple of very nice photographers while in Cranberry Marsh who told us about Thickson Woods, which was nearby, so off we went. We couldn't find anything there, but while there we learned that we were near, but not actually at the the Woods. Better luck next time!

Good shooting all!
