|Red Tailed Hawk from my dining room window|
|And from the basement window|
We were alerted to the hawk's presence by some shrill shrieks outside and it appears the hawk had managed to find something to eat. The hawk's presence may be a factor in why the yard has been so quiet today when it comes to bird song in general.
On another day while walking along the nearby trail, came across one of nature's armoured tanks. I was surprised to see this out in the middle of the day and plodding along on its way to the nearby river.
Also managed to get out to Nipigon this summer for a day trip that involved a visit to the waterfront, a short hike along the trail to Red Rock and then a very nice lunch at the Edgeview Restaurant. A shot of the Nipigon River from the trail and another that also manages to include the new bridge - which incidentally is still a ways from being finished.
|Not a bridge too far, a bridge that does not yet go far enough|
And one final picture from my summer sojourns around Thunder Bay and the North. A shot of me and one of my minions! Every self respecting economist must have an abundance of minions to support their policy prescriptions and points of view.
