The general public always gives birders, naturalists (in Quebec a naturalist is a nudist....lol) and nature photographers this questionable look until they realize what it is we are looking at with our Bino's , Scopes, and Zoom Lenses. I am always happy when someone asks what we are looking at or…Continue

There were 3 robins in my back yard on February 1, 2016.
Shediac Bridge, NB.
I've set up my blind in the field behind our home, it's got a lot of Blackberry, Golden Rod, and Timothy Grass, plus close by is hardwood bush.
I've got a feeder and a suet feeder set up there with black oil sunflower seed, and starting tomorrow Nov 5, will be using mixed seed.
So here is a list of species seen in the blind;(I count birds Identified that were flying overhead)
1] Black Cap Chickadee
2] Boreal Chickadee
3] White Throated Sparrow
I was out to Johnson Mills yesterday and stopped in Rockport to see what showings were around. I was able to get some amazing shots after spending some time in Johnson Mills. Not the 60,000 sightings that was there a couple weeks ago but I had more enjoyment watching a dozen mixed semipalmated plovers and…Continue

My sister-in-law and her husband just cleared a huge patch of tall bushes and brush at the back of their property this week. Had I known they had plans to do it so soon, I would have thrust in my two cents and said "But wait! it's nesting season! couldn't you wait until nesting season is over to clear things out?" Even realizing that they want to have a veg garden, and that it would mean they now couldn't start planting until next year. I know if she had known this, she would have…
First time on this site or any other for that matter, but I thought everyone would like to know that we have a Black-chinned Hummingbird at our feeder today. It is too fast for a picture but we recognised it with field glasses. We live just inside Memramcook on Principale St. It's A long way from Mexico! Hope it's of some interest. Ray.

The past weeks have been very cold wintery days. In the Bathurst area, the temperature has plummeted to -39°C, and this is not counting the wind-chill factor. The last thing that you would expect to see is an American Robin in your yard. On February 11th, 2015, a lady from Petit-Rocher called regarding a "spectacular" bird hanging around her garage door. When I asked her to describe the bird, she indicated that it was the size or a little bigger than a robin with an…Continue

Hey everyone it has been quite a while since I checked the site out! Hope everyone is enjoying the new year and all the new birds! I moved to St. Andrews for school this year and I'll be starting my 3rd big year. With grad year and all I only recorded a grand total of 63 birds for my 2014 big year, and I'm really hoping to break my record of 79.
