Good Morning meet our queen of the woodlands theses days, Our female Evening Grosbeak that has been at the feeders these pasts weeks. These photos were taken by photographer “Sasha” for now if you want contact information, please text or contact me. Sasha is another faithful “bird photographer” who patiently waits for the birds to “pose” for him. The top two really show her precious little face and her expressions.
Praying before taking action changes the outcome. Have clear wishes and do your best. Then something new will open up for you.
I have been a couple of years trying to find out the name of the bird(s) that I would see driving down the dead end road to one of the woodland areas I go to. Finally … Dan Cadieux, (Wildlife photographer) who you’ve met on this site gave me the name of the bird. I was at the site where he had just seen one, and was patiently waiting for it to come back, it had come and scared off the smaller birds. He did finally get a picture later that morning, I hope to share it with you soon. This was just down from where I would usually see them “hanging out”… when I looked the bird up.. YES .. I recognized it right away. Patience ..!
Use money and things usefully and enthusiastically. Money and things are materials for self expression. Use them joyfully with appreciation.

If you charge it, it will shine someday. Was it a mistake that your cell phone ran out of charge at an important time? We must never run out of the charge of dedication. Let’s make our individuality shine by using the steadily piled up charging of effort for the sake of the world.
Put your heart into your words. Do you tend to speak in jut a matter of fact tone? It is important to put your heart into your words.

The pictures were taken after the big snow storm of the other day, we had almost 20 ” fall in one day. Our amazing winter crews worked all during the storm, plowing and clearing the streets/roads and parking lots. Canada might have some whopping storms, but we are prepared, we deal with them our city especially (Ottawa) gets top marks for the effectiveness of the planning committees in all areas of the city, and companies that focus on keeping our roads and city streets open.
Winter is a fact of life. When I was out filling the feeders in the woods, I was happy to see that those who could were out with their snowshoes and skis embracing the new snowfall.
Have a good day everyone find time to share a smile… enjoy your day!
How we age, our acceptance of the changes to our physical “selves”, our mental awareness of these changes, and how we have catalogued our experiences and assimilated life “lessons”… will always elude our “present” state of mind.
I am doing a project that involves “anatomy” do you know when you research the male anatomy and then the female anatomy the results are very different. We are different, both human .. but very different in our makeup and how we are perceived.
What interested me the most.. what stood out (pardon the pun) was that the male anatomy pictures all showed, except maybe 1 or two, the member in the state of arousal. It was getting late and I had plowed through maybe 3, 4 dozen pictures.. as I told a friend, I thought I was going through a car parts inventory it got so boring.
Reminded me that.. one should never focus on just one issues, or fact.. but to try always to see the full picture, to understand the circumstance one finds oneself in. LOL sorry if my example is a little “wonky” this morning, blame it on all the research*.
A cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy. When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

Face the speaker, make eye contact and listen carefully. Listening to people is also a form of expression. Listen with Makoto (sincerity)

research sites, are plenty when it comes to the male anatomy who knew!
Even if you have done it many times before, put your full heart into it. When we are doing something, especially if its a small or easy task, we tend to get sloppy. Let’s put our whole heart into everything we do, even if its something as simple as pushing a button.

I have no likes or dislikes Even for those who say “I’ll have anything” there are things that I love ” I don’t see many people getting sick without eating what they don’t like, but I often see people getting sick from eating too much of what they like. The same goes for hobbies. It is a human path that doesn’t touch and stay.

Think of the timing before you say …”but” When stating your opinion, make sure you are being respectful of others’ opinions. Be mindful of this when you speak.
Being Thursday I realized it was Thursday Doors, this year I thought to maybe explore a door that grabbed my attention and discover why it did. Doors are needed to enter and leave a building but for me they also add character to the site/location. This door was off a main street of a small tourist town, I was taken by the owner’s use of natural woods to use in the window box in front of the big picture window. Decorative it allows light in, but gives privacy to the occupants inside. The door is an old wooden door with decorative trim, blending in with the other décor used on the façade… simplicity at its best.

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

Every day we evolve, every day we face new opportunities, every day we get to make a decision on how we spend our time. What we want to do to accomplish this moment in time…is our decision… make it worthwhile.
for example — I ask myself why I only spend 5, 10 minutes with the crows, when I am on my own time table, they are giving me pleasure, why do I rush away.? Silly thought, random moment.. but there you have it.. caw caw caw….
Waiting for the day to get warmer, for the sun to shine on his/her patch of grass… I drive by each day and wave. I wonder if by now they recognize my car… It is a long distance love affaire.
It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasm.
Hello out there, I have a feeder at P23 (Dewberry) that needs food, this is the big feeder usually supplied by Ottawa Field Naturalist Club/Club des naturalistes d’Ottawa. They are experiencing supply shortages and a few of their feeders are therefore without feed.
I know from personal experience that there are a lot of photographers out there and nature lovers who come to P23 often .. to take pictures and enjoy the wildlife that habits in the forest there. I have been feeding there every day (except spring/summer and early fall).. I know that many people bring a small stash of seeds to lure the birds. Now IF we can, is the time to pool our resources.
The OFNC needs help in getting food to the feeders that are not being serviced. I’ve made arrangements for another feeding.. The feeder takes a huge amount, and needs refilling about once a month. Are there volunteers out there.. to help us get this feeder supplied with food for the next 3 months.
The mailing address for OFNC is email@example.com in subject line please put P23 feeder. If you would rather connect with me.. you have my co-ordinates, contact me thru the blog I will be happy to forward your info.

We got an amazing number of birds last year, P23 was the hub for a lot of the Evening Grosbeak activity, let’s continue to be “the” place for visiting birds.
I delight at spending time with them. I pull up and maybe there is one crow in sight, by the time I’ve turned in and parked…. they have begun to gather. They are not trusting of my big honking Nikon, so I pull out the trusty cell… and get a few snaps in before they wise up to my ruse.
Be very careful about doing things you really like. Do everything in moderation. When you overdo, you’ll lose your balance.
