Strathroy Conservation Area


This morning the sky looked threatening and I figured it was about to rain.  But along towards 11 AM, things cleared up and I decided to head over to the Conservation Area.  Nice day for a stroll.  There were pockets of birds scattered around the woods.  I came across a flock of 6 or 7 Yellow-rumped Warblers, a couple of Red-breasted Nut\hatches, a Blue-headed Vireo, several Hairy Woodpeckers and quite a few Blue Jays.  I also encountered a Red-bellied Snake quickly leaving the trail and disappearing into the leaves and ground cover.  I also found a neat little feather.  Not sure what kind specie of bird left it behind.  But feathers of any kind are nice to find and I can’t resist picking them up and bringing them home.
