Mount Pleasant Cemetery Laval-Le Cimetière de Laval

Today my daugther, Shannon, and I went bird watching at the Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Laval with BPQ. It was a beautiful spring day. Sunny and 5 degrees early this morning. There were 33 live birders and zero zombies. No zombie apocalypse today.


There were a couple of Black-capped Chickadees.
