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.

Odd, you don't LOOK like a bird...

Friends of mine were startled yesterday to find a wingless bird at their bird-feeder, right outside the window.
Ben and Sharon reached for the camera to catch the moment.

This little pine marten made the most of the opportunity to stuff himself with seeds and suet.
Winter is a time when most of us do have food out for the birds. We're usually hoping to catch a glimpse of the bluejays, chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers and grosbeaks who winter here.
But sometimes, what shows up doesn't look much like a bird. Nancy has one very determined deer, with a long neck, who has figured out that if she stands on the snow, with her front feet on the deck, and reaaaallllyyyy reaches, she can bump the birdfeeder, and be rewarded with a mouthful of sunflower seeds.
Pavlov would be proud...
