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.

Angry Birds

Okay, so you got caught in the porch...  Lots of windows, a little confusing for a bird, we get all that. 

You might think that the bird in question would be happy to be rescued, but you would be way off the mark.   I'm not sure who was more surpised -- the bird to find itself inside a human hand, or me to find myself holding a female cardinal!

While they are quite common not far to the south of us, they are not all that common right here.

She was undoubtedly beautiful, but she was not very gracious. She was, in fact, one Angry Bird.  Let me tell you, those beaks, which are good at cracking open seeds, are not only sharp, but they can really clamp down! I still have a tiny bruise on my finger.

Cannot blame the girl, however. From her perspective, she had just been abducted by an alien, and had no intention of being beamed up quietly.

She is now flying free.  For which I, at least, am grateful.


  1. Nice shots!

    She does have a fierceness in the eyes!

  2. I love all birds...even angry ones!

  3. Oh, no! Everyone wants to stay at Bondi!!!!
