The Gray Catbird is a familiar bird about suburban hedges in southern Ontario. Its call is a catlike “meuw” and its song a musical medley with few repeated phrases. We heard several singing this morning.
Thank-you to a group member who alertly spotted a Red-headed Woodpecker – a first for these TDSB walks. Here are some on-line photos:
Thank-you to Kathy Ross for these Trillium photos!
How soon hath Time, the subtle thief of youth,
Stol’n on his wing my three-and-twentieth year!
My hasting days fly on with full career,
But my late spring no bud or blossom shew’th. – John Milton (1608–74)
