Love the colours!
Floral sea of red, white, and yellow.
Love the multi-coloured tulips.
Another sea of tulips.
I only stayed for a short while because I needed to walk through the Arboretum and Carleton University to take the O-Train home.
Tourists paddle-boating on Dow's Lake.
Along the lake, I noticed an Eastern Kingbird (Tyrannus tyrannus) hiding in a tree.
First kingbird of the year.
American red squirrel (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) munching on a nut.
Another reason why I wanted to come here today was to search for a bird reported at FWG - the Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula), a species that I only photographed one time almost six years ago!
The bird even sang a short song to defend his territory.
After watching the oriole, I (fittingly) had an orange and reminded myself that it was time to go home to make dinner.
Before leaving, I searched for this American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) singing pretty songs while hiding in a crabapple tree.
White-throated Sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis) at the bottom of the feeder at FWG. What a handsome sparrow.
