A Variety for my Thursday Trios

thanks for checking out Thursday Trios #13

This week there is no theme for me and I never expect a theme from my followers but the photos should be of people, animals or things grouped in threes.

A Bird’s Paradise – Water, Water Everywhere #70

….thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2021/03/22/small-waterfall-water-water-everywhere-70/

The Dufferin Islands are just up the road from the Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls. It is a sanctuary for walkers and birds alike and is probably largely unknown to most tourists. The walk takes you over a series of bridges and ponds where marsh birds love to hang out. It is truly a hidden gem that is right under your nose if you take the time to look and explore.

In Search of Food

….our presence brought them closer than I expected

Normally the geese and ducks at the pond swim away when I try to get closer to them for a good photo but today they came right up to the water’s edge and reached over as if they were expecting us to feed them. Judging by the number of empty plastic bread bags that were lying around I suspect that’s exactly what they were looking for.

Despite signs posted in the park not to feed the water foul bread the public does it anyway. Bread is not a natural food source for ducks, geese and swans and I’m sure that a diet with too much gluten is harmful for these beautiful birds.

Spring Like Weather in March

….but it is officially spring, isn’t it?????

Yes Spring officially begins in March but rarely do we get such nice weather so soon. When March comes in like a lamb it usually leaves like a lion. Now I may have spoken too soon because we still have four days left in March.

This time last year this is what we were experiencing.763308-AF-E29-B-4-FBA-978-A-E904224-B707-B

This past week we’ve had some beautiful spring weather. The buds on the trees are starting to green, the daffodils and crocus are pushing up through the ground and the birds are singing morning and evening. This is what spring looks like in 2020. Fingers crossed that I haven’t jinxed it.58-E80148-34-B6-485-A-BCF5-0-AF29-D9-D2-A29

Hint of Spring in February

…not all of February was cold and snowy

Last weekend we had beautiful weather that brought the walkers, dogs and photographers out in droves. I think people knew that more snow and colder temperatures were on their way so they took advantage of the cleared paths, sun and warmer climes.050-C6016-EFC2-43-FC-BCA4-EF096425-C551-1-201-a
