All the photos were taken around the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario recently.

Autumn Trumpeter Swans

2021: Autumn Trumpeter Swans

Two Trumpeter Swans in front of some autumn colour. Photographed on a pool near Isaac Lake on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario recently.

Trumpeter Swans were almost hunted to extinction in Canada. They are making a slow recovery due to various reintroduction schemes.

It’s not really a bird photo so not a Flora and Fauna Friday post. And as I had taken my bag of auto-focus zooms that day it’s not a Getting Back to Basics post either.

Tree Swallow

Flora and Fauna Friday: Tree Swallow

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Tree Swallow (Tachycineta bicolor), a member of the swallows and martins family found in the Americas.

This individual was photographed at Isaac Lake on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario last spring. The species traditionally nests in tree cavities but will use nestboxes. There are several areas at Isaac Lake with groups of nestboxes for them.

This is also a contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Trees photo challenge.
