Seen in the Wild

Today Soren Bondrup-Nielsen and I participated in the annual Wolfville and Area Christmas Bird Count. We were looking for birds in a territory north-west of Canning, Nova Scotia. In all, we counted about 23 species during the day, most of which are found in Soren’s book, Winter Nature, which he co-authored with Merritt Gibson and which Gaspereau published last fall. (Merritt Gibson was also counting birds in another ‘block’ nearby.) It was a great day, but the count totals were lower than average.

I'm no good identifying gulls. One immature ring-billed gull had even Soren consulting the bird books.

Also spotted this week: A new sign erected in my neighbourhood. Ugh!
