A Lovely Morning at Lambton Woods

Mallard

I was up early this morning to meet up with Miles Hearne’s 8:00 Saturday walking group. This park along the Humber River is really “springing” to life right now, and there were loads of birds along the river and into the woods.

Canada Geese

For every bird I photographed this morning, there were several I missed. The morning air was filled with bird song.

Crown Gall

We saw a few kildeer on a sandbar in the river.

Tulip Tree

European Alder with both male and female parts

Golden-crowned Kinglet

We found a spruce hosting several golden-crowned kinglets. These tiny birds are challenging to photograph both because they can quickly get lost in branches and also because they seem to never stop moving.

Do you know this tree? It’s called a Hop Hornbeam
Skunk Cabbage

Lambton Woods is one of the best places to find skunk cabbage. Today we saw it in just about every wet area in the woods.
