I traveled to the (Dominion) Arboretum this afternoon to see what the recent warm Spring weather has brought to us in terms of wild fauna and flora. It was my first time traveling by O-Train and to the Arboretum, and I must say I am quite impressed by train, especially since it only took me about 25 minutes from where I live to the Arboretum.
Today's weather is really nice - sunny and not too cold. The Ottawa Field-Naturalists' Club had a birding event at Mud Lake this morning at 8 AM, but it was too far and too early for me to go on a Sunday morning. I instead went to Macoun Marsh, a part of the Beechwood Cemetery.
The marsh is located at the southeast corner of the cemetery.
