There is a lot of wildlife along the Sheriff Creek Nature Trail; herons, cormorants, and turtles are often seen hidden in plain sight.

  1. Yes. Nice, normal photos. Thank you. 😉 I would like more than I can say to have a blue heron decide to live in my garden.

      Saw another heron just outside of Toronto, of all the places, a highway stop. There was a a reedy wetland right next to the parking area and as we were about to start of the next leg of the drive home a heron flew in front of us and landed on the shoreline. You get this weird mix of nature & heavy urban surroundings even in the southern part of Ontario.

  2. Beautiful! Reminds me of the small river I grew-up by. Particularly the shots of the beavers’ work. There were usually quite a few of them roaming around (I rarely saw them) but they were perpetually building / repairing dams, etc. (which was difficult to miss).

      They can be very tenacious hardy working rodents. They were imported into parts of South America and have created quite a problem. They had to get Canadian trappers to help train locals on how to trap them. What goes around comes back to bite your tree. 😀

  3. That looks like a lovely place to take a stroll. I like how it has a certain uniqueness to it.

      We only walk the short end of the trail, along the water ways. The full loop can be a bit much if you are unprepared. Some friends go up the old mine road that is near the other end of the loop and they encountered a young massasauga rattlesnake. The snakes are endangered and rarely sighted. Our fiends had no trouble avoiding it, but worried that their dog would do something stupid , threw a jacket over the snake . They let the MNR know about the sighting and retrieved the jacket the next day.

  4. I see what you mean, it has a similar look to it 🙂

      I find it fascinating when I visit other blogs and see how culturally diverse we are, and yet some aspects of the natural environment can so closely resemble home….
      There are the great contrasts as well – I did a post about ice fishing on Elliot lake in response to Lee’s post on Lady Elliot Island (by the Great Barrier Reef ). 😀

      • Adaptation to the environment lends itself to similar solutions I guess, probably also related to when different bits got separated.
