Lemoine's Point Conservation Area Downy Woodpecker

Kingston, Ontario

Welcome Back!
These photos of a Downy Woodpecker were taken at the Lemoine's Point Conservation Area in Kingston.

This one was playing hide and seek and kept peeking at us around the trees. It is a female woodpecker, as the male one has a red tuft of fur on his head. I believe I do have pics on this blog of a male woodpecker, probably taken at the same spot.

Well, I may be MIA for a week or so as I'm flying to Ottawa and driving back here with Keturah, as she moves the rest of her belongings here.

Have a great week!

Lemoine's Point Conservation Area Critters

Kingston, ON

Welcome Back!

This week I have a selection of small animals from the Lemoine's Point Conservation Area! All but one, are pics of the chipmunks. They are very friendly, sometimes too friendly...I find that having Zeek with us, they aren't as willing to come close. The black squirrel was the same...They get fed by alot of people, so aren't as "wild" as they should be!

They are fast little buggers too, so you have to be quick with the click (of the camera shutter)! :-)

Next time I will have some woodpecker photos from the same place/day as these were taken!

Have a great week!
