Today I photographed two species of bird. The first one is very common and the second one is rare in the area.
First up is the common, Great Blue Heron, Ardea herodias
and now for the rare, American Avocet, Recurvirostra americana
Unfortunately the bird was to far for a decent photo.
This Least Chipmunk (Tamias minimus) was photographed on the Beaver Pond Trail in Algonquin Park.
Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) perched on a branch overlooking the Otonabee River in Peterborough, Ontario.
A Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina), makes the dangerous trek across the road. I assisted the turtle after taking this photograph. Peterborough has a facility called the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre, dedicated to helping turtles that have been injured by vehicles
