#121 and others

A serendipitous day …

Returning from a meeting in Ste-Anne I saw a GB Heron working the riverside shallows just off the Macdonald Campus so wandered down to the waters’ edge to get a couple of photographs … photographs duly taken I noticed further out on the river a pair of American Black Duck – #121 for the year’s patch list. Nice.

Later in the afternoon, a Ruby-throated Hummingbird diligently worked the bright red flowers on a canna lily in a pot near the bird feeders. By the time I had got the camera it had moved on from those flowers and was perched on the wires around one of our sunflower seed feeders before moving up to perch for a while in the adjacent larch tree. It seems to have been a juvenile female.
