Waseeka Wildlife Sanctuary

Today was absolutely beautiful - sunny and low 70s.  I hiked Cart Path Trail to Pitch Pine Trail and out to the dam returning by way of Cart Path Trail.  I saw my first Pine Elfin butterfly of the season, but it landed on the edge of the trail and I couldn't move around it to improve the light.  Oh well!

Today's star was Great Blue Herons.  I saw so many!  I counted at least six but there may have been as many as eight ~~ not sure if some were repeats just changing location.

I also had a nice close look at one of the Ospreys and got to witness the changing of the guard in the nest.  A good outing!


The dam was covered with lovely violets.
