Here at the pond, summer visitors arrive to my natural Air B&B in June from near and far. I admit up here above the 49th parallel, I don’t get as many varieties as I’d like to see, nor as colourful as many of you have down in the south. Still it gives me great pleasure to host them.
Here are some of the avian visitors in the past month. Glad they find my Air B&B suitable for their stay, taking advantage of the pool and the amenities, free breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They are usually shy to be photographed, so I got them in my Air Guestbook unobtrusively.
Some new guests, for me anyway, like Mr. and Mrs. Ruddy Ducks. Hard to get them to come closer for photos, so here’s a blurry snapshot from afar. How do I identify them? The light blue bill of Mr. Ruddy:
A repeat visitor, although not always easy to find, so I’m delighted to host, the Greater Yellowlegs:
Families are most welcome. Here are my regular visitors, the CG Family:
Always glad to see them make themselves at home. I got this pic as they took their morning stroll:
The quiet Spotted Sandpiper soaking in the sun and the sight:
And of course, who can beat the free meals while they’re staying here. That’s why they keep coming back, look at this Great Blue Heron helping himself to the buffet:
Is that a big fish that Mrs. Pelican just gulped in?
And finally, I’ve waited for them for so long, the Yellow Warblers. I know they like their stay. Just listen to their calls as they share on their social platform:
Well, if you’ve got food in your mouth, you can’t call back. No instant messaging here at the buffet table:
More from my Air Guestbook next time.
