With the strong cold front this weekend, there has been a lot of bird activity with large numbers of creepers, kinglets and sparrows migrating through. The morning sunshine has also been coaxing some of the sparrows and robins into a half-hearted rendition of the their spring songs. The maples and ash are already past their best now with many of the leaves already on the ground.

I had a Winter Wren at the Trent Wildlife Sanctuary today, along with a Song Sparrow. At our feeder on Maple Crescent, we had a brief visit from six Pine Siskins.
