|A Painted Lady Butterfly at Ruthven Park.|
First up, we visited Ruthven Park, as the bird banding station was open for the Fall banding season. Unfortunately, with the extremely warm weather it was pretty quiet for birds, but we did have one very cool sighting, and we also enjoyed the many Butterflies and Dragonflies in the meadow.
|Our first Canadian Yellow-billed Cuckoo!|

|Eastern-tailed Blue Butterfly, we saw many at Ruthven.|
|A new Dragonfly for us, Arrow Clubtail!|
|Always makes me a little sad to see the Purple Martin houses lowered for the season.|
|Box 17 was home to a family of Eastern Bluebirds this season.|
After a short visit with a couple of the people who work there, we were on our way again. We stopped at Halifax Donair to pick up a donair pizza for supper.
|Tastes just like home!|
