Fall Migration is starting...
We scrubbed and washed (and re-washed) all of Karen's Winter turn-out blankets for her horse over the past ten days. After they were thoroughly dry I waterproofed them and we packed them back up in their storage tubs to transport back to her tack stall at Willow Farm in my vehicle, along with her English saddle and bridle. I drove the load over via a road that passes the back pastures which were recently mowed. Quite surprised to see two big pods of canadas stacked-up tight on a couple of high spots in the newly mowed fields this morning. I pulled over and "glassed" them thoroughly, no juveniles among the fifty-eight birds. Everybody very alert and nervous in the two tight-packed pods.
Looks like the migration of non-mating adults that spend the summer on the north side of Superior in southern Ontario is starting-up. Our early goose season is still two weeks away. Time to renew my granted permissions for hunting access.
Al, our hummingbird feeders are "buzzing"! Last night we had six to eight ruby throated hummers jockeying for feeding position when the rain ceased. Not too long before the out-the-door!
