Welcome to the first day of May! Isn't it wonderful! I am beginning to see some of our old favourites that have returned!. Saturday I caught a glimpse of a Great Blue Heron. What magnificent birds they are! The one I saw was in the midst of a tangle of bushes and twigs but nevertheless I was able to find it in the middle of the picture below.

We have been waiting and watching to see a Red Fox since February. Finally we saw one yesterday while driving past a newly plowed field. The fox looked like it was in good condition after enduring another winter.

We had known the Osprey were back this week as we had seen them flying over the river and also over our yard, however this afternoon we saw two of these beautiful birds on a new nest they had built. A new platform had been built at this site as Ospreys nest here each year and we wondered if the returning Ospreys would accept an empty platform as an invitation to build a nest? They did , as you can see their nest on the platform when I took pictures of it this afternoon. My pictures were quite dark but I like in particular the pictures taken when one of the Ospreys were preparing to leave the nest. The wings of the departing bird created a nice frame in the background for the osprey remaining on the nest.

I love to find turtles in the early spring. We have a pond area where I can often find a sunning Painted turtle resting on a rock, shoreline or extended branch leading into the water. I found one such sighting earlier this week and was delighted to identify it as a beautiful Painted Turtle!
