Happy holidays to all.

I am asking people who sojourn along Hall's Rd. in southwest Whitby, in particular the pathways down to the wetlands, to speak out to those photographers who decide that they must get right underneath an owl to get their photos-of-a-lifetime. PLEASE TALK TO THEM, AND WIN THEM OVER TO HELP TELL OTHERS THAT A) PATIENCE WILL REWARD THEM, and B) OWLS USE THEIR EARS TO LISTEN FOR UNDER-SNOW RODENTS--with this in mind, why do humans insist on plodding along, scrunching down on the snow off the pathways?

Of late, some of the other "regulars" along Hall's Rd. have been--robin, hairy woodpecker, flicker, n.shrike, white-breasted nuthatch, cardinals, juncos, house finches, several different raptors, male pheasant calling. An adult Bald Eagle showed itself near the foot of the road 2 days ago.
