Bird Kingdom, Pt.13

Bird Kingdom, Niagara Falls, ON

Welcome Back!

This week I have more bird photos from the Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls. 

The first couple of photos are the Superb Starling, I think (based on the website) the next photos are the Nicobar Pigeon, with very beautiful coloring and the last photo is one of some conures. I can't identify which conure they are, because they look like juveniles to me, with the fuzzy heads and they are quite small too!

Sorry, for not posting last week, I had some sort of stomach issue going on and stayed in bed until noon and then I had to do all my errands and chores, so I never made it in here to update the blog!

This week went by fast again...I always say that...Time does fly when you are having fun for sure! I've been designing some projects for work at home in the evenings too! (and today) As well, Kevin, Zeek and I have been getting out for some walks! I took some photos of the spring buds with the Nikon and will share on here some day! At the rate I'm going, it will likely be December!

Yesterday, Kevin, Zeek and I headed to Presqui'le Park in Brighton for a day of hiking and enjoying the weather! It was beautiful out and I took some photos, but unfortunately, we didn't see too many critters..a few frogs and a swan, who was not very cooperative for photos! :-)

Anyway, have a great week!

The Scarlet Ibis

Bird Kingdom, Niagara Falls, ON

Welcome back!

This week I'm highlighting the Scarlet Ibis..one of my favourite birds at the Bird Kingdom. I think they are one of my faves because of their colour and they are quite funny to watch too! (see the last pic)

Sorry, I did not post last week, I was busy with two Easter dinners and their prep as well as my normal chores. I also had an ear ache for most of the weekend it probably didn't go away until Wednesday of this week! Brooke came home on Good Friday and we met up with Keturah at her new apartment and then we picked up Carter (Brooke's BF) and went for sushi with everyone. We rarely ever all eat together anymore and I miss it! 

Work is going good and we are busy as per usual. It's still fun, albeit tiring at the end of the day. This past week, Kevin, Zeek and I started walking at the park. We went almost every night (except Thurs because of the rain). It feels good to be active and out in the fresh air again! I'd likely go all winter, but Zeek does not like walking in the snow...I should have bought a husky! :-)

Have a great week!
