Lunch Date: Feathered Friends

Enjoyable experiences watching birds on Welland’s Merritt Island this week! Top: Black-capped Chickadee; centre: female Downy Woodpecker; and bottom: northern Blue Jay. I tapped into birder Brad Clements’ expertise for the woodpecker identification. He pegged it as a female Downy because it lacks a red patch at the top of its head. One of these days, hope to eyeball an eagle reportedly spotted on the island, in the area of the Woodlawn Bridge. Haven’t yet seen it, but that’s what folks say. /Photos by Joe Barkovich.
