It seems weird but I met my sister Barb and brother-in-law Harv in Ottawa. They live in Steinbach but were also in Ottawa when we were. They invited us to join them on a birding outing not far from where they were staying. This is a picture of Barb’s hand with a chickadee that arrived to eat seeds from her hand. That is my kind of birding.
This is a close-up of a chickadee.
This is a white-breasted nuthatch.
This is an impressionistic photograph of the maple leaves along the Mud Lake Trail where we walked.
The male Wood Duck is one of the most beautiful birds in North America.
Squirrels were also plentiful and fought over seeds left for them.
