I was up at 3 am today for the BPQ Summer Solstice outing. I felt terrible and went back to sleep. I woke up 2 hours later and took a photo of the sunrise. The temperature was 14 degrees Celsius and sunny. By the time I finished, the temperature was in the mid twenties.
I got ready and went to Ile Bizard for a walk. I met Felix while walking. We had a discussion about the park.
I got hungry and went to my favorite breakfast place. Le Cozy Cafe in Hudson.
After breakfast, I decided to go to Clarke Sydenham Nature Reserve in Hudson. It is next to LeNichoir.
I heard a racket and found a pair of Downy Woodpeckers with their fledgling.
There were a lot of Mallards. Felix and I did not see any Canada Goose nor any Wood Ducks.
There were a lot of Bullfrog bellowing.
There were a few Tree Swallows.
There were a few Green Herons flying around.
Not many dragonflies flying about. Here is a Chalk Fronted Corporal Dragonfly.
There were many Red-winged Blackbirds.
We saw a pair of Black-crowned Night Herons fly over us and land on a dead tree.
The Iris’s have bloomed.
We spotted some Eastern Kingbirds.
We heard a couple of Marsh Wrens. However, we didn’t see any. We did see quite a few Swamp Sparrows.
A Great Blue Heron flew over us.
That all for today’s walk.
