Cold morning

We cannot say that we had many cold mornings so far this year.  But there has been colder spring.  In the Outaouais region, we are very fortunate by the quantity and variety of waterfowl that we have.  This is possibly due to the wide variety of habitats and to the warmer climate.  In the spring, the newcomers follow one another and use the different spring or swamp openings to feed and to take shelter.  When you have late springs like in 2007, it is not only deers that suffer but other animal species.  During that spring, many different species used the opening that was created at the mouth of our small lake.  This particular morning, a Wood Duck and a Black Duck couple had a rest while awaiting a ray of sunlight.  Good day.  Louis
