So many lovely things to be thankful for this week!
1. A wonderful bird-walk with my brother in Valleyfield woodlot.
A leafy cathedral
light and shadow dancing
2. A summer bird-walk is more about listening and identifying birds by their songs. They are difficult to spot among the leafy canopy. We heard woodland thrushes, several varieties of warblers, red-eyed vireos and ovenbirds.
A small, inconspicuous bird of the forest floor, the Ovenbird is one of the most characteristic birds of the eastern forests. Its loud song, “teacher, teacher, teacher,” rings through the summer forest, but the bird itself is hard to see. (Cornell Lab of Ornithology)
Ovenbirds are usually seen and not heard so I was really pleased to capture two pictures of of them. Even if the moth blocked its face 🙂
3. Afterwards, my brother treated me to a fish-cake lunch on the waterfront in Montague.
While we ate, we watched the lobster fisherman take their traps in for the season.
4. On the way home, I had to stop to take pictures of a beautiful hedge of wild roses blooming along the roadside.
Such a sweet fragrance.
5. Here’s a final lovely – even sweeter than the wild roses! 🙂
Little Miss Josie – all tuckered out after her bath!
