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.

Bob Bob Bobbing Along

Feed Me! shrieks this little robin who rather presumptively leapt from the nest a little too soon and was rescued from the driveway. It took a few attempts to return him to the nest -- he was pretty determined that he could fly, despite evidence to the contrary.

We've already had batches of baby robins hatch, fledge and fly this year.  This is part of Round Two.

At Beaver cottage, the second flight is well on their way - and most annoyed when guests come out onto "their" porch.  Last week they looked like nothing so much as alien species.

This week, they are resembling baby robins...  By next week, they will be starting to hop out of the nest and begin to try their wings.

They grow with remarkable speed.  The nest, too is a fascinating construction. Spare a moment to think how this is built -- carrying one tiny twig, one minute plug of mud at a time.   Nature really is amazing!
