Birds, Birds, Birds

While out on the wild flower walk, we also saw lots of bird life ! Actually, this first bird, a female House Finch, was seen at our house just before we left for the wild flower walk.

At Cherry Hill Gate, the entrance to the RBG Hendrie Valley, we saw a male Downy Woodpecker and a Black-capped Chickadee that we did not itentify in terms of sex.

This male Northern Cardinal brightened up our evening a lot with his bright colours.

Églantine was the photographer for each of these photos. (There are some advantages to being the co-leader. One does not always have to be near the front of the group.)

Wow! Those are fantastic shots. The close-ups are just beautiful. We never see Cardinals here, so that's really a gorgeous red treat.

Cardinals are always a treat, even for those of us who see them almost every day.
