FALL GETAWAY - PART THREE


Gray Jay in Algonquin Park.  
The next day we took advantage of Cedar Grove's offering to pack a picnic lunch if you wanted to be off site during lunch time. We left for Algonquin Park after breakfast. We hadn't been to the park in over two years, and it was really nice to get back there.

We weren't really sure what to expect in way of wildlife this visit, with the temperature being so warm. I know Rob was disappointed we didn't have a moose sighting, but getting to hand feed a few Gray Jay's made up for it. I didn't think we'd see any, I associate them with snow, but I guess a free handout is too much to pass up.

I never tire of hand feeding the Gray Jays.
This Blue Jay followed his cousin around to get some peanuts.
Rob enjoying the fun.
Rob with a rare unbanded Gray Jay in his hand. We both got to feed him.
There were lots of Dragonflies around, like this Canada Darner. 
A nice surprise, seeing 3 Horned Larks.  
Always a good day when you're in Algonquin Park, and I look forward to our next visit.
