Lots O' Photos

We got home from our birding trip to Point Pelee and Hillman Marsh yesterday and I've finally gone through my photos and selected the best ones.

This house finch (carpodacus mexicanus) was high in the tree in front of our house as we were getting ready to leave home.

This Canada goose family (branta canadensis) was getting ready to take a swim. We estimate that the babies were only a couple of days old.

Black-and-white warbler (mniotilta varia)

Black-throated green warbler (dendroica virens)

Common yellowthroat (geothlypis thichas)

Baltimore oriole (icterus galbula)

We stopped in at the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada on the way home. Most of the donkeys were out in the pasture but we visited the half dozen or so that were by the barn. It is a very peaceful place. The donkeys who are brought here are usually rescued from neglect or harm. They get to live the rest of their days being well-fed, well taken care-of, with lots of donkey companionship and peace.
