Well the finches sadly did not make it; as we had a storm come in and blow their eggs out of their nest … so they moved on … but this week have noticed that we now have a morning dove nest in our tree 🙂
We have been having a crappy summer … lots of rain and very cool with a few exceptions
A creative and indoor outing is to a ceramic art studio
They are all over the place now … I think it is a new trend
If you have kids that like painting or being creative this is a great afternoon outing especially on a rainy day 🙂
Let me kick start this 5 day series with the parliament of canada !
This is a great field trip for kids studying the government … I would suggest maybe 8 years and up …depending on the child and their interest in architecture and /or government as they not only learn about the government but the building itself is really beautiful to visit and learn about.
oh and by the way it is FREE just be careful as it fills up fast during tourist season and they have limited spaces for visits and close early in the afternoon.
We have learned that male finches defend their female mates rather then a nesting area … and so we observed these 2 males fighting. These are not the best pictures as I was standing on the wrong side with the sun and they are so fast and difficult to capture; but I like the silhouette images.
And a random morning shot from my morning walk today … I am loving this weather 🙂
have a great weekend!
