Turtles and Blackbird Marsh Life II

This picture was taken the same day that I took the Geese Family photo below.

The turtles seem to be watching this bird rather intently.

Spring is here. It seems a little late this year but these Canadian Geese are right on time.

Watchful  Robin

This photo is from the same walk along the fence line in Quinte West last Sunday. I believe it is a different Robin than the one in the previous post.

This one was watching me from afar. Making sure I was doing nothing more than admiring the spring weather with my camera.

Spring is finally here in Quinte West, Ontario! I went for a quick walk this cold morning to find some birds along a fence line. I spotted blackbirds, starlings, chickadees and robins.

This robin was showing off the material it collected to help build the nest in the cedar tree.

It has been a long while since I posted last. This is one of the last photos I have taken and have not shared.

This was taken one bright, cool fall morning down the street from where we live. Maple Leaves were displaying there colours they are famous for.
