Spending time in the outdoors has always been a passion of mine. Most of my subject matter is avian but I will readily spend hours photographing almost anything else in the natural world. Currently I live near a small town, Rockland, just east of Ottawa. I work in Ottawa and so most of my photography is done in eastern Ontario. Thank you for dropping by and enjoy.

    Great catch Bill. What do these guys eat when they can’t get peanuts?

  • Thanks, Al – a great catch for him and myself! Blue Jays certainly love peanuts but they will eat almost anything including: seeds, berries, insects, nestlings and eggs of other birds, amphibians and more…
