    Some more Purple Finch pictures taken in my Caledon backyard by my fiance. See Wikipedia for more info on Purple Finchs. First photo shows a close up of it eating, the second photo is of a male and female purple finch and the third photo is of recent late snow storm in Caledon, Ontario which […]

    Purple Finch

    Its definitely starting to look and feel more like spring now and after this past winter it can’t come soon enough. I’m starting to notice lots of birds coming back now, Robins which is a good sign of spring as well as Purple Finch’s (pictured above) which I snapped in my Caledon backyard. The Purple […]

    Coyote on the Prowl

    My fiance just happened to notice this coyote out of the corner of her eye this morning as we looked out into the back field behind our house. Up until now we have heard them at night from time to time howling so we knew they came close sometimes but haven’t actually seen back there […]

    Canadian Goose Walking Dangerously

    With spring just around the corner the ice is starting to melt on many of the ponds in the area, I caught this Canadian Goose walking along the dangerous ice. Although many geese stay year round now those that did leave appear to be returning, I am seeing more and more of them in the […]

    Blue Jay on Cloudy but Warm Day

    It was warm this morning so I went out for a quick drive hoping I might see some deer but struck out on that. I did however catch this Blue Jay on Humber Station in northern part of Caledon. I would have liked to have gotten a closer shot but this was the best I […]

    Small Little Woodpecker in Caledon

    This small little woodpecker has been in my backyard for quite a while but I haven’t been able to get a good picture of him until now. I am not entirely sure but I think it is either a female Downy Woodpecker or a female Hairy Woodpecker, if you know please let me know. I […]

    The Crows are in Town (HDR photo)

    I’ve noticed a lot of crows in the Caledon area the last couple weeks, they are ugly birds but I thought I’d take a picture of one anyways. Apparently Ontario’s crow population has been on the rise for the past decade and several communities have battled with the birds. In Chatham, Ontario for instance, 160,000 […]

    Wild Turkeys in Caledon, Ontario

    Wild Turkeys in Ontario almost vanished and were not seen widely for many years due to years of logging and unregulated hunting. Fortunately the birds were re-introduced to Ontario 20 years ago and now the province wide population of wild turkeys has now reached over 100,000 and are a common sight in Caledon. You will […]

    Close-up photos of some Chickadees

    Chickadees are everywhere in Ontario not just Caledon but its still nice to see them all winter when most birds are away. Here are some close up macro shots I took of these little birds with my Olympus 70-300mm zoom lens. They are easier birds to take pictures of as you can get fairly close […]

    Deer on the Outskirts of Bolton, Ontario

    I took these pictures this past Monday morning fresh from the weekend thaw I caught this small herd of deer on outskirts of Bolton. If you are heading south this is the very last field before you hit bolton, the Albion-Bolton District Park is across from it. The deer were quite the attraction this particular […]
