Birding at school on a Sunday

Before working another long day in the lab, I decided to go to the feeders again and see what I can photograph.

Unknown tracks.

American red squirrel near the feeders.

While focusing on something else, I lost the squirrel and one showed up on the tree looking rather cold.

Again, only chickadees and one goldfinch were found near the feeders. This chickadee, however, was industrious and working hard at the grubs underneath the ice and bark.

Something white and full of protein.

Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus)

Then I left the feeders and took photos of the drumlin on the other side of the river.

Panoramic view of the beautiful weather. Pretty nice, no?
PS - I am taking a break from school tomorrow and going to Amherst Island with the bird club to look for owls!
