Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Bluebird: 1, Chickadee: 2

Gary from the Algonquin Inn dropped by again with his camera. He got some great shots of Mom Bluebird, bringing home dinner to the nestlings (Yes, they've hatched! We have two breeding pairs here... HOORAY)

The background for one of these photos is the indoor arena, quite a long distance away, but it certainly serves to highlight the birds themselves.
He also caught Mom Chickadee in action. She's in the next door nest box (try saying that three times fast!)

What Gary noticed, while waiting to catch a shot of Dad Bluebird, was that the chickadee was returning twice as often as the bluebird with tasty green caterpillars for the hungry kids inside. Is she just a better hunter, or does she have more mouths to feed, we wonder?

She looks a little harrassed... Or, as David describes her, Bird With Attitude...
