Brant Goose

the Brant Goose is still at the Algonquin Inn on Oxtongue Lake,

at last i was able to get a picture of it on water,the records show that there have been
only three sightings of the Brant in this area over the last 20 years.

winter bird arrivals

Winter can't be far off as we have had our first winter arrivals at the bird feeders today,
Evening Grosbeaks are back....a great start.the feeders are located at the front of the Algonquin Inn on hwy 60 just before Algonquin Park.
this year we have also set up new feeders in the back yard area as well.
