About mid-morning today my co-worker, Al, appeared in my office doorway and announced, "Bird alert!"
And it was a big bird alert. Not as in Sesame Street "Big Bird" but as in Canada Geese and a number of them. They managed to find a patch of grass among the snow and stayed around all day to nibble. I was shooting through a rose tinted window so I've converted the photo to black and white. This flock was still feeding when I left work at 4:30 p.m.
In the meantime, a different flock landed outside my office window this afternoon. They wandered up and down the hill for about ten minutes....
.....and finally decided to fly the coop
We also have a pair of Red-Tailed Hawks in the office neighbourhood. With any luck they're a mating pair and we might get to see some juveniles over the summer.
