We’re back in Algonquin for the weekend and our first stop when arriving is Mew Lake in the hopes of getting a photograph of the local pine marten.
As we eagerly wait for the possible appearance of the marten I happily take photos of the birds that come to visit the area. First up the beautiful crow.
Followed by the small white breasted junco.
And then the pine marten appeared for a few minutes before darting back into the forest.
Surprisingly we had a visit from a bird I have never seen before – the common redpoll. He didn’t stick around long but his brief appearance was exciting.
