The ospreys have returned for another year.

First order of business is to make repairs to the nest.

The Birds Of Winter

We have been feeding now for about two months and have attracted a following of regulars.

At breakfast there is a show outside our windows which is a great way to start the day.

The Blue Jays knock on the glass if their peanuts are not out on time.

The other birds are less greedy and their feeders last a couple of days before they need refilling.

Here are some of our regulars.

Blue Jays out my Window

The Blue Jays come to visit the feeder and before they make a run for the peanuts, they sit in the trees and consider their chances.

They are very wary, but always successful.

Nosbonsing Birds

As well as Great Blue Herons, Loons and Cormorants also find Lake Nosbonsing an hospitable place.

Great Blue Heron

Great Blue Herons are found on Lake Nosbonsing. They are quite wary and they tend to jump up and fly away when they think you are getting too close. “Too close” is usually about twice as far as you think it should be because you mean them no harm.

But they don’t know that and so they take no chances.

They are elegant and graceful flyers, their large wings making beautiful curves as they move through the air.
