Adventures in Bird Watching: Market Lake

It looks like we’ll be busy this weekend working on the garden beds, pulling weeds and mowing the lawn for the first time this year. If the weather holds out, that is. This time last year we were out at Market Lake doing some bird watching, so I thought I’d share a few of those pictures again.

I’m hoping we can do a quick road trip soon but for now we have so much work to do and this year we’re feeling a sense of urgency we didn’t feel last year. We want to expand our gardens and focus our energy on putting up as much food as we can as well as having extra for sharing, so road trips are not exactly a priority.

We also have to figure out how the heck Fred keeps sneaking more hens into his pen because we gave him two and this morning when we went out to feed we found that there are five in there! 😆

I can’t blame the girls, really. He is such a stud…

I hope you all have a great Saturday! 🙂

    I used go birdwatching quite a lot when younger, in the 70s, but with family etc I stopped. Recently I have watched notifications of sightings in our local area, on Twitter, and am amazed at the range of species being seen nowadays which were never seen previously.

    1. This winter we had hundreds of Trumpeter swans that flew by at sunrise and again at sunset. We’ve lived here for almost twenty years and I’d never seen them before! I am pretty sure I’d have noticed them if they’d done it before. It was so magical. I hope they return next year!
