    Cedar Waxwing birds in Caledon

    The Cedar Waxwing bird, a new arrival this year to my Caledon backyard or at the very least I never noticed them until now. These Cedar Waxwing birds started hanging out on this one dead tree and would eat some berries from a bush further below. I took these photos with my big 50-500mm zoom […]

    Downy Woodpecker

    Here is a close up of an adult male Downy Woodpecker. The active little Downy Woodpecker is a familiar sight at backyard feeders and in parks and woodlots, where it joins flocks of chickadees and nuthatches, barely outsizing them. The Downy is the smallest woodpecker in North America and their breeding habitat is usally forested […]

    Young House Finch

    This young House Finch eating on one of our many bird feeders was born earlier this spring in front of our house. Every year there is a pair of house finches that builds a nest in one of the shrubs near our front entrance, this year they had three young ones that hatched and now […]

    Flying Red Tailed Hawk

    With the much welcomed unseasonably warm weather this Easter long weekend across Ontario and the Caledon area the wildlife is literally buzzing around everywhere now. While sitting on my deck enjoying a few beers I managed to capture this Red Tailed Hawk flying around over the field behind me, a few times he flew right […]

    Stalking a Hawk

    Quite often I see Hawk’s in Caledon, they are territorial and usually stay in certain areas so after a while you know where to find them. However getting good pictures of them even with a big zoom lens is often a challenge. You may see them on the sides of the roads, sitting on power […]

    Blue Jay on Deck

    I have noticed a lot of Blue Jays in the area and around my house lately, they are beautiful birds but elusive to grab a close-up photo. This particular guy was on my deck one morning and I had to shoot the picture through my sliding patio door glass which is obviously not preferable for […]

    Tagged Red-tailed Hawk south of Bolton, Ontario

    On my way home I caught this Red-tailed Hawk (correct me if I am wrong) just south of Bolton along side Highway 50. He was scanning the ditch below for food and I must have made him nervous as he flew away fairly quickly once he spotted me. I didn’t notice it until after I […]

    Turkey Vulture in Caledon, Ontario

    They are damm ugly birds but Turkey Vultures are all over Caledon and various parts of Ontario in the summer time. People often confuse them for hawks when they are flying high above due to a long similar wing span but up close they are not similar at all. I took this picture near the […]

    Great Blue Heron spotted in Bolton, Ontario

    Just by chance I spotted this Blue Heron out of the corner of my eye on the outskirts of Bolton, Ontario this past week. There was a small little pond and green space near the Caledon Rec centre where he landed, he looked a little more exotic that typical birds you see in the area. […]
