Connecting people with nature in Ontario's Mississippi Valley

A multitude of juvenile birds plus a Bobolink in my backyard

MVFN Nature Notebook sightings received July 11-13, 2018

Lise Balthazar (Sheridan Rapids) reports “I have a multitude of juveniles in my backyard: Grackles, Sapsuckers, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks, and a family of Crows which has been very entertaining to watch, even though they wake me up every morning at 5 a.m. “

Here are some of the photos sent by Lise.

Also, a Bobolink. Lise writes “I know that the Bobolink population is declining and it’s always a treat when we can spot one”.
