One of the sites Larry and I picked in Quiet Spaces our Natural Areas of Waterloo Region guide (the inspiration for an earlier post of mine) is called the F.W.R. Dickson Wilderness Area. My wife and I visited it this afternoon to check the Spring action!
We saw black capped chickadees, sparrows and chipmunks. The boardwalk has seen better days but is still serviceable. It took some sliding on ice to reach it but if we get some more days like today and yesterday, it won’t be long before there’s no danger of that. Despite that fact there were lots of people enjoying the weather there.
There was lots of evidence of people feeding the birds (and chipmunks as a consequence).
As always it was a wonderful natural area to visit.
