It was a beautiful morning for a walk in the Laurentians. The sky was clear and the temperature was 17 degrees Celsius.
Special note: Marc, our guide, led us on a great walk. He was a fountain of information and showed us some hidden gems. We saw a Peregrine Falcon nest with three baby falcons. We decided not to post any pictures the nest and scenery.
We started our walk and heard a Black and White Warbler. I tried to find it. It was hiding behind some leaves. In the far distance was a Broad-winged Hawk.
A Northern Flicker landed in the field near the trail.
There were a few Alder Flycatchers.
Looks like a territorial dispute between an Alder Flycatcher and an Indigo Bunting.
There were a few Indigo Buntings around.
Here is a female Indigo Bunting.
A couple of Chestnut sided Warblers were nearby.
Quite a few Turkey Vultures were circling. At one point there were nine of them together. We realized, two members of our had gone on ahead. We fear for the worst….
We witnessed a spectacular display of aerial combat above us. A Peregrine Falcon attacking a Turkey Vulture.
Here is a shot of the Peregrine Falcon.
There were many insects and plants in the park.
Common Blue Damselfly
Chalk fronted Corporal Dragonfly
Common Whitetail Dragonfly
Forest Tent Caterpillar
Yellow pond Lily
Here is my Monet of Lac Paradis
That all for today’s walk.
