Nest Building

My Throwback Thursday post this week is traveling back to spring 1987.

I spent part of the spring documenting the nesting cycle of a pair of Eurasian Blue Tit.

In this photo one of the adult birds is bringing moss for the nest. It appears that one bird prefers moss and the other dried grass. It also appears that each bird builds one side of the nest.

Ice Formations at Sunset

My Throwback Thursday post this week continues my look back at the spring thaw on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario in 2008.

These ice formations were just off the shoreline as the setting sun illuminated them.

Lighthouse at Sunset

My Throwback Thursday post this week is going back to March 2008.

This is Chantry Island and its lighthouse at sunset. The lighthouse is one of the six Imperial Towers built on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Lake Huron is mostly snow free but refrozen after a partial thaw.

Throwback Thursday this week is returning to the exploration of my film archives with a photo from the early 1980s.
