Nigel and I headed to Humber Bay park with a special treat for our little feathered friends. Bringing along bird seed will usually guarantee that you will see some sort of bird. Sometimes they are the kind you don’t necessarily want hanging around.
This Canada goose was terribly demanding. It squawked at us if we didn’t immediately hand over some seed. There were also a pair of mallards that were shovelling the food down. Honestly, some birds!
In the nearby pond some Gadwells were feeding on some algae. One got close enough for me to get a good shot. So even though some songbirds came by it was mostly the ducks and geese that pushed and shoved their way to the seed.
From Humber Bay we decided to make our way to Rattray Marsh in Mississauga and see if we could find some different birds. Turns out we were unable to find any different birds within lens range but we did spot a pair of mallards.
This female just stood and stared at us while her mate same quickly away. I guess she knew we weren’t much of a threat.
