The last week has been quite exciting as we have had some unusual guests here….
Everyday since last Monday a Moose has visited the garden and here I photographed it crossing the road.
and here is a piece of video of it in the garden the following dayVodpod videos no longer available.
We were even more surprised when on Wednesday it had a large calf with it
and here is a piece of video of the calfVodpod videos no longer available.
On Friday morning as we walked out of the house to take Emma to daycare a Siberian Nutcracker (thanks David) (Nucifraga caryocatactes ssp macrorhynchos) flew from a tree onto the ground. Unfortunately I did not have much time to watch and photograph it so this is the best I could do
and just after dark on Friday evening we had a Tengmalm’s Owl in the garden, flying around and calling. I have put up a nest box now in the hope that they might stay.
