A Woodlot in Winter

A Woodlot in Winter
Heidelberg, Ontario
30 December 2012

    Part of the territory assigned to us for the Christmas Bird Count included this woodlot in Heidelberg. Hardwood stands are not especially productive from a birding standpoint at this time of year, but it was a great pleasure to immerse ourselves in it nonetheless. One could not help but be reminded of Robert Frost's iconic poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. Despite the inconveniences snow sometimes brings I for one would not like to live without it. Winter brings its own array of charms as does every other season of the year.

I'm a life long birder. My interests are birds, nature, reading, books, outdoors, travel, food and wine.
