Twice last week we went down to Ojibway Park in Windsor (about 50 min drive) to see if we could see any deer and birds. We lucked out on both accounts. Today I have some pictures to share with you from our outings.
You can click on the pictures for a closer look, enjoy!
white tail deer, they will eat right out of your hand, so friendly,
As we were walking around the back side of the park, I heard this bird call, but wasn't sure what it was at that moment. Bill was a few steps ahead of me, so called him back to where I heard the sound, in the thickets against a tree trunk, Bill spotted a Carolina Wren. Never thought we would see these in the winter time. There ended up being two of them. We spend over an hour taking pictures of these beauties.
As you know we are bird lovers, so our backyard has many feeders. The good thing is that it attracts a variety of birds, the bad part is it also attracts Hawks to our backyard. We have had cooper hawks and sharp shinned. Bill was able to photograph a Sharp-shinned hawk sitting up in our cedars after he devoured his lunch (a small bird - so sad).
Lastly, on Christmas Day, Mark, Anna and the boys along with their pet dog "Snoopy" also know as 'Snoops" were down for the day. Bill captured the sweet face of Snoops as she was sitting so quietly overlooking the puzzle called 'finding Waldo'. Hence, then caption on the picture! Bill always comes up with some pretty cool captions.
