It was a sunny and chilly morning, about minus 5 degrees Celsius. I dressed warmly with winter gloves, which made it hard to shoot. I enjoyed my morning walk.
There were about 2 dozen American Robins fly about and roosting in the sunshine.
and a about a dozen House Finches doing the same.
a few Downy Woodpeckers here and there. One landed on the reeds near me. I managed to get a shot of the male before it took off.
Later on, I encountered some Black-capped Chickadees and a White-breasted Nuthatch. I managed to get a shot of the White-breasted Nuthatch.
I ran in to a handful of Northern Cardinals. Here are shots of the male and female Northern Cardinals.
A few squirrels were scurrying about. They are easier to spot now that the leaves have fallen.
On the way home, I stopped by Centennial Park in Dollard des Ormeaux.
A few Ringed-bill Gulls
2 dozen Mallards.
and a Hooded Merganser (m)
While getting some shots, it took off.
That all for today’s walk.
