We spotted a few birds on a recent weekend at Sandbanks Provincial Park for a wedding. While having a morning coffee outside on the porch, this Black-capped Chickadee was waiting patiently for its parent to return with breakfast. And being able to watch it closely, I noticed that the eyelids close from the bottom to the top because it fell asleep for a bit; something I didn’t know before!
And on a quick bike ride down the road, the trees were filled with flycatchers, warblers, Baltimore orioles, and red-wing blackbirds, cedar waxwings and swallows, to name a few. And, although it was a little distant, I noticed a hummingbird perched on a limb, the first of the season.
