birds

While out skating last weekend with Thor, I stopped several times to enjoy the what is normally spring-like sounds of these birds. It has been a very warm winter here, aside from maybe 10 days altogether, so maybe they're confused. Or maybe I just don't know anything about the birds that winter here. That's a likely scenario, actually. In any case, here they are. 


At one of the protected parks in the city, they have this large bird sanctuary look out thing. We didn't see any birds to speak of at this location, but it looked cool to peek through the holes and see the landscape nonetheless.

Yeah the birds will be confused so you've got that right, after all they can only go by the temperature and atmospheric pressure they can't look at their diaries can they?!!
The large bird sanctuary look out things are called hides!! Just sayin'!!

Silly me, I thought all birds had tiny little alarm clocks attached to their feet and that's what told them to return to Canada... ;p

That's a neat shot of the framed snowy landscape. I like how the light filters through the slots.
