    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 […]

    I caught a few close ups of this Garden Snake on my way to Caledon Lake. The official name for them is actually Garter Snake but they also go by a number names, garden snakes, gardner snakes or gardener snakes, or even garder snakes or guarder snakes. I took this photo with my new Olympus […]

    Why Did the Turtle Cross the Road?

    The signs of spring are here (actually it feels like summer today), I stumbled across these baby Geese in Bolton, Ontario this morning right across from the Canadian Tire. There was quite a number of them walking across the road and holding up traffic earlier but all managed to cross the road safely. See some […]

    Red Fox on Mount Pleasant in Caledon

    Here is a wild red fox I saw on the way home from work at Mt Pleasant & Castledurg. He had a mouse in his mouth and was walking along Mt. Pleasant for a long while, I followed him for about 1-2 km. I didn’t think I would be able to get a good shot […]

    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. […]
