…..six days into spring and it still feels like winter
Despite the cold, the sun makes me want to walk around my neighbourhood. When the wind isn’t blowing it isn’t too bad. Unfortunately the areas that I like walking the best are always near the lake and even the tiniest breeze can be bone chilling cold. For some reason the geese, ducks and swans don’t seem bothered by the cold. It must be all that lovely down next to their bodies.
Even though many birds migrate south in the fall, here in Toronto many of these migrating birds stay here all winter long. Now that the weather is starting to warm up and the sun has reappeared (although today is grey and raining) the swans, Canada geese and gulls happily go about their day and don’t seem to mind the close proximity of people, in fact some love the extra attention.
