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.

Lunch Date

 Lunch is served!   There is seed and cracked corn put down for the chickens, who are ranging very freely and with glorious abandon these days.

Over by the office, the 'neighbours' answered the lunch bell too... 

Cute goes a long way towards tolerance, and we adore the chipmunks. Friendly and cheeky, they will come right up to your hand to nibble at seeds and say hello. Who couldn't like that?

The rose breasted grosbeak was also quite delighted to snap up some cracked corn. They are more usually spotted up at the bird feeders.

 (look at the 'fat cheeks' on Chippy, as he stuffs himself with food!)

Even the chickadees, those hardy lovely souls who tough out the northern winters at our feeders, were happy to join the chipmunk and grosbeak.

The swallows did some fly-overs, but they of course aren't interested in the grain menu -- they are gearing up for the nesting season by catching as many insects as they can while in flight.

  1. I remember the odd chipmunk being utterly fearless!
