Just about everything in Nobleton is modern. This former church is the only historical building that I found.
Modernization will soon be coming to it:
The Chipping Sparrow is one of our smallest sparrows, often nesting close to our homes in ornamental evergreens or other shrubs, as well as along roadsides and forest openings in Northern Ontario. Their song sounds somewhat like a miniature sewing machine motor.
You can see the Tout-lily flower in the background. Here is other botany from my morning of roaming on side roads.
Birds that I was able to photograph:
This is the time we dock the night
Of a whole hour of candlelight;
When song of linnet and thrush is heard—
And love stirs in the heart of a bird. – Katharine Tynan (1861–1931)
Beautiful photographs and observations, as always. I really like how you’re melding domestic with wild. Feels like we’re on the road trip, getting a sense of how accessible research can be (there’s so much to see if you explore the ‘provincial backyard’).
Gorgeous pictures of beautiful things. The next best thing to being there. Thank you so much, Miles!
