As I have likely stated many times, you never know what you will see on a nature walk. This morning, in cold and windy environs, we had a Northern Parula. This 4.5 inch long member of the warbler family should be well on the way to its winter residence of eastern Mexico and the Caribbean instead of braving the chill of Lake Ontario. .

I routinely record and watch CBC’s The Nature of Things. They’re all excellent. I was particularly taken with an episode from a week or so ago.
The description of the episode states: ” When humanity hits pause, nature reboots. Scientists discover the surprising ways pandemic lockdowns affected our planet.”
You can watch all episodes online. Easier if you’ve got a CBC Gem app which is free unless you want no ads, in which case you need to spend a bit.
E’en in these bleak November days
There’s gladness for the heart that heeds. – Charles Dawson Shanly (1811–75)
