Back to Waseeka Wildlife Sanctuary

I spent my lunch hour at Waseeka.  I don't want to miss seeing the Osprey chicks, but today the parents fooled me.   They were both perched, one on the edge of the nest and one on a branch off to the side, so I thought the babies had been born.  Several moments later, though, one of the parents settled back onto the nest.  They must have just been exchanging responsibilities.

Two fuzzy-headed babies were just barely visible in this nest which was way out over the water, but it was so distant that I couldn't tell what kind they were.

Aha!  It belongs to an Eastern Kingbird!

Lots of blooming water lilies
