A Little Birding at Greenway

Greenway Park / The Coves, London, Ontario

I went for a walk at Greenway Park this afternoon. It was a nice 14c, but the clouds moved in and the winds picked up (SW winds, gusting 33km).  I noticed a Hairy Woodpecker working on the tree stump.  Along the Thames River, a few Mallards and Canada Geese, most of them resting.  There were American Goldfinches in the tall weeds along the edge.

Since I was close to The Coves, I decided to check it out.  It was quiet there...saw a Great Blue Heron.

Falling Leaves

The Coves, London, Ontario - October 10, 2018

I went to The Coves this morning.  It was quiet but it was nice to see the  tree colours.  The leaves are starting to fall now.  Another warm day 25c, feels like 32c, sunny.

I saw a few Wood Ducks and heard a Carolina Wren.  There were some Robins and Cardinals.

I popped into Woodland Cemetery to see how the deer are.  Beautiful animals.  A lot of trees are turning nice colours.

Today, I thought I would visit Mount Pleasant Cemetery to see the trees.  They were gorgeous. A lot of Sugar Maples.
