It was a rainy day yesterday here in Kingston Ontario. I happened to look out my front window and thought I saw a rather large bird on the edge of the Cataraqui sitting on a branch. So I went outside to investigate.
I cannot say this is normal behaviour for herons, to sit so long in one place with many people nearby.
It is possible the heron was injured as it seemed quite lethargic just sitting there.
It was notable enough that I am writing this post about the sighting.
Having wrested myself out of my comfy chair, I decided it was time to feed the birds along the woods trail, despite the rain.
I am glad I did because I discovered three more wild flowers that had bloomed since my last trek in the woods a few days ago.
This is the flower of the milkweed plant. So beautiful.
This flower is one of the only blue wild flowers I have seen.
This mauve flower is a new one for me.
That's it for this post, just wanted to share what I saw yesterday.
Tomorrow is Canada's 150th birthday. I wish every Canadian a happy birthday and please stay safe!
