Osprey cries rang out during these photos.

Birds of a Feather

The Osprey seem to be doing well, with chicks in each nest. Here is only 1 bird.

Note the high wire act, and Ontario Hydro One.

If a bird were to be fried, would it become a TV dinner?

Are these cow birds?

Groan - something to mourn/moan about?

(A Sunday cross-word puzzle clue for T Elliott S, perhaps?)

A little bird told me so  -


Not everyone can be green

Saw several environmentally friendly "Green" life forms yesterday.

In order of appearance:

I like "green"

Vicki, not so much - and what she will tolerate for me is marvelous:



Saw Birds of a feather today.

In an English Country Garden

In Canada - and it is 1st generation. However, it is "Old World" respect and dignity - and not from the United Kingdom as might have been expected.

It starts with this.

And that got me thinking - always dangerous. Can you recall a song by the name, "Green Door" ?
I recall it around 1956, 1957 - and several articles list 1956. Kind of interesting, kind of sad. "When will we ever learn ... long time passing.

I think of a little girl who lost a friend here.

I can tell that she was born Hungarian! Not only Hungarian, but of royal blood, she is a princess!" 

Ah, the Green Door!

Memories, sigh, W O B

A little of this and that from Langman's

Inertia? Lazy? I have not posted 1% of some good outings in recent weeks. So those of you who have had "great expectation" - I am sorry I have been tardy.

Vicki went out yesterday to explore and kindly agreed to show me today what she found. Work in progress! So just a little sample from this morning.

Some birds:

This is the "bird feeder" for the Mute swans and evidently the swans and their 5 cygnets didn't get everything.

How about water spiders? Are they actually spiders?

And some Wood lilies:

There were also orchids, dragonflies, etc., etc., and 20 other days, and rope making with Ramara Historical Society - try it, it is very interesting and an increasingly lost talent. And then the pyramids!

Must tell you about the work I did yesterday  ...   Maybe later?

Thunderclouds and Birch trees

The ups and downs of life - nature, society,

This was on Monday, on the Carden Alvar.

Quite a changeable day,

We saw maybe a dozen different birds that we could identify with potentially many more for the experts.

Hope the ill wind brings some good to Carden and Ontario,
