The Benjamin Park Trail Leafed Out

Benjamin Park Trail
18 May 2014

     This post is mainly for Richard Pegler who commented on my last post about the Benjamin Park Trail that he was looking forward to seeing it when the trees were leafed out. Spring was certainly delayed this year due to the severity and length of the winter, but the trail has now assumed its verdant glory and provides shade and tranquility during the heat of the day.
    I couldn't resist throwing in one more picture of the Eastern Screech Owl who has been a regular feature of our walks since I first discovered it. I have not failed to see it on any of my subsequent walks.


  1. It does look to be a very pleasant place, and thanks for including the Owl.

  2. Beautiful area to walk and bird watching.
    Greetings Irma

  3. Owls are sort of irresistible whether just looking or trying for that special photo. Maybe its the fact that many of them stay around and don't fly off like many passerines. " The heat of the day" - things have moved on!

  4. Thanks for your nice comment.....:-) yes there are for sure a lot of Beautiful flowers in Canada. Love the owl. THats something I want to photograph . I only hear them at night.

  5. Your owl seem very happy in this tree hole!
    I wish we had more very old trees to shelter birds!
    Lovely trail indeed!
    Still counting days for your trip to Europe?!!!
    Cheers David, keep well!

  6. Oh dear, my com doesn't show...
    I was saying that "you" owl looks so happy and cosy in his tree hole!
    Lovely trail indeed and very peaceful!
    Cheers David, keep well

  7. Beautiful area, David. Your owl is gorgeous. Great series. Greetings from the Netherlands, Joke

  8. Wonderful impressions of this special park and an amazing picture of the owl. Fabulous ! Best regards, Synnöve

  9. Nice to give the leaves on the trees. A sequel to your blog And the owl is fantastic to see :-))))))
    Very nice and clear.

    Greetings, Helma

  10. I can't believe I nearly missed this post, David! I was probably too busy trying to sort out for my visit to Scotland. Yes, it does look even more fabulous with the leaves on the trees and, of course, your owl image is amazing! Please keep us posted on any developments.

    Best wishes to you both - - - Richard

  11. Just seen that, although the visit was on 18 May, you didn't post it until 25 May, when I was already away, so I wasn't being as negligent as I feared!
