Skating on Thin Ice

Winter Sports

Small groups were out on the ice in the bay today  – rather hoping that it is think enough to skate on.

New Lodger

Red-bellied Woodpecker

Thanks to climate change there have been a small number of these birds on the West Island for the past decade, mostly in the Arboretum. They are starting to spread out and claim new territory as winters get milder and where there is food available. They love feeders and peanuts. This lady arrived in the garden a few weeks ago and had=s now decided to become a resident with several visits each day.

This species is quite common down in the States but a real local rarity. The gods have smiled on us again.

Upriver – 3pm

Late afternoon

Looking west along the St-Lawrence from the Baie-D’Urfé town hall we were struck by remarkable light between a series of rain showers. Only had the iPhone again which doesn’t quite do justice but you will get the feeling, I hope.
