Mallards at Thames River.  They are resting on their own rock!

The trees are in nice colours.  



There are still some plants flowering. I saw 4 Dark-eyed Juncos in there.



I also saw lots of Robins, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Crows, Canada Geese, and a Carolina Wren.

A Variety of Birds......

Gibbons Park, London, Ontario - 4 degrees, a few clouds, chilly

I thought I would go to Gibbons Park for a change this morning.  I walked on the dirt path along the river.  On the water, saw some Mallards and Canada Geese.  I also saw Cedar Waxwings, Blue Jays, Turkey Vultures, American Crows, Carolina Wren, House Sparrow, Starling and White-breasted Nuthatches plus the birds shown below....Northern Cardinal, American Robin, Song Sparrows, Ruby-crowned Kinglets, Downy Woodpecker, Black-capped Chickadee, and American Goldfinch.
