A few weeks ago, I suggested to 2 friends who love photography and birds, that we take a little road trip to Caden Alvar. It is a well-known birding location near Kirkfield, Ontario which I had only recently heard about. According to their website, it is among the top 5 in Ontario and the top 200 in the world. In case you would like to find out more about this area, here is the link:
Being very new to birding, an interest I developed because of photography, I have a great deal to learn about both birds and photography! We were somewhat unprepared for the condition of the very narrow roads (more like trails!) and due to the very wet weather, I was wishing that I hadn’t volunteered to take my sporty car. That day we would have been better in an SUV or truck! Oh well, we made it without incident and were successful in our quest to see an Eastern Bluebird. It was at nesting box #10, where Tim had seen it a week earlier. Thanks, Tim…. Then, on the way home, we finally spied a pair of ospreys in their nest near the highway. I managed a shot of the male as he flew out of the nest. It was well worth the 2 hour drive and I’m sure we will go again.
