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.

Flocking Together, Flying Alone

 What great photos we found this week from the Friends of Algonquin Park!

This gathering of common loons signifies the turn of the season. They are getting into their winter plumage, and preparing for the flight south.  The adults will leave this month.  Juvenile loons will hang about the lakes probably until into November before they set off.  There's still some time to hear them calling across the blue waters!

But how about THIS for a photo???  This bald eagle was captured on film at Lake Opeongo, Sept. 24th. That's what is left of a ruffed grouse in his talons.  The bald eagles have been slowly returning to the Park over the past several years -- and we see them here from time to time, which is always a real treat for our guests.  Last winter, we had five of them settle on a deer the wolf pack killed on the bay.  But nothing we've ever photographed in the Bald Eagle dept. comes close to this!

  1. I've seen bald eagles regularly in photoblogs from out west, but nothing here. I've only seen golden eagles in the park and the surroundings.
