I met up with Miles Hearn’s Saturday morning nature walk group this morning at 8:00 at the east parking lot at Marie Curtis Park. What a perfect morning to wander about Marie Curtis park proper and the Arsenal Lands.
There were many birds singing this morning both in the woods and the around the fields. It turned out to be a fabulous outing. Here are some of the plants and birds I photographed along the way.
The yellow warbler along with the pine warbler, nest in Southern Ontario. The others are just passing through.
I’ve photographed the sound baffles in the Arsenal Lands countless times. Back in WWII there was a machine gun factory on this site. They tested the guns out back of the building, which made lots of noise, so they built wooden sound baffles to mute the noise some.
