Cardinal, Oriole, Purple Finch (20150609) A stopover in Toronto
We left Calgary on schedule and were hoping to get to see our new grandson in Toronto on our way through. Nathan was born on May 5th some 3+ months early, so he was in a neo-natal room and we were not certain that we would be allowed to see him. We did get to spend a little time with him. What a tiny little feller! The stop over allowed me to get out into Sharon's back yard and do a walk around Too Good Pond in Markham.The yard is usally good for a Cardinal or two and this trip was no exception.
I couldn't find the Heron that frequents this area, but with bull rushes and creek there are always Red-winged Blackbirds here too.
On the way back to the house I also found this young Robin.
So even if you are on the road traveling, you too should always find a little time to put some "wild" in your life!
