Secret Trails Day

Location: Private Property near Walkerton, ON

Today's hike was on private property at the place we were staying at. No maps, and I'm keeping the checklist private but we saw some great birds at a farmhouse bird feeder. Lots of Dark-eyed Juncos (of the slate-coloured subspecies) and a lone Red-bellied Woodpecker came to visit the feeders.

Our hiking was a rough ordeal too, as the wind was strong and the snow was blowing around us constantly. At one point it did stop and we got some great pictures.

Blowing snow!
