The one bird species that I usually count on photographing here is the Black-capped Chickadee:
On this day, there was so much bird seed spread out in the park that the Chickadees showed no interest in me nor my pocket stuffed with quality sunflower seeds. Too full:
Here are the birds I was able to photograph:
A cold coming we had of it
Just the worst time of the year
For a journey, and such a journey:
The ways deep and the weather sharp,
The very dead of winter. – T.S. Eliot (1888–1965).
I’m sorry to read about the winter cancellations (even though I am myself not directly involved in groups right now) but I did expect it to happen. The situation is dire and the restrictions necessary, in my opinion. Not that you are in any way obligated, but I suspect that you will keep posting regardless, Miles, and many, I am sure, will continue to follow your submissions. Stay safe and take care!
Those photos of the ducks casting their shadows are beautiful. Thank you.
I will certainly miss the winter walks. I have been doing a little birdwatching in the neighborhood and seen a Cooper’s Hawk behind the 7th post office on Toronto St. and many ducks along the lakefront including a common golden eye. There are regular visits by red-tailed hawks in St. James. Thank you Miles for increasing my knowledge and making my walks so much more interesting. All the best and I so enjoy your posts.
We too will miss the walks Miles.
Looking forward to the next time they are able to run.
Thank you so much for educating us all!
