Common Birds / Long Lens Day 4: January 2021

On this day I headed out to Lynde Shores near Whitby hoping to find the Wild Turkeys who are often there. None were in sight but people told me that they are still frequently here. Here are some photos from a previous visit:

NATURE POETRY

On those cold and frosty winter’s mornings when the grass crunches beneath your feet,
and you’re wrapped up in layers, hats and scarves, as is everyone else you meet. – Paul Kennedy

    As I mentioned before, I remember visiting this place with a winter group and I loved it! Great close-ups. Loved the rude Canada Goose!
    Thanks, Miles!

    I really like the photo of the nuthatch and chickadee sharing? a feeding station. The chickadee is certainly giving the nuthatch an earful!
