Backyard Birds

There were about 30 grackles in my back garden today, only the 2nd time I have ever seen grackles (and the 1st time was 2 days ago). There were also blue jays, northern flickers, starlings and juncos out there today.

Logy Bay to Sugar Loaf Head

Today I hiked a part of the East Coast Trail from the Oceans Science Centre in Logy Bay to Sugar Loaf Head.......2 km each way, a lot of uphill climbing for the first part. The views were amazing and the weather was perfect. 19ÂșC with very little wind......surprising since I was on top of one of the highest hills around and it's always windy here.

We've had a lot of goldfinches in the back garden lately, using the birdbath and eating seed from the feeders. Today while I was mowing the lawn one of them flew into the window. It lay stunned in the grass for a long time. I went inside and got my camera and took several photos of it. It flew away after a little while. Later I got a few photos of a goldfinch in the tree.....I doubt it was the same one.

Bluejays and a Walk Around the Pond

The bluejays and I had a photo shoot today......haha. I set up the small camera on the deck and took a video of them, the video here is 2 1/2 minutes. Then I went for a walk around a nearby pond.
