Cootes Paradise AKA the Dundas Marsh at sunset from Desjardin's Trail at the Canal, Hamilton, yesterday at dusk. Within a span of 5 minutes we watched Hooded Mergansers floating on the open water in the canal, a Beaver swim and climb out of the canal to gnaw down a small tree and carry it back into the water, and then a Bald Eagle fly over the the high level bridge at York just above the canal.
Today is supposed to be warm, but the next week looks like temperatures will dip to more seasonable levels. I'm looking forward to a chance to skate on Cootes and play a bit of hockey. Let's have some winter, shall we?
