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.

Signs of Spring. Awake.

The raccoons are awake, and coming out of hibernation.  They leave tracks along the shoreline every night.

And -- because they are hungry -- they will raid the bird feeders at night if you are idle enough to leave them out.   Taffy reminded me of this fact tonight. I bring the feeders inside at night, but hadn't quite made it that far when Taffy came to alert me to the fact that we had company.  A Coon up a tree, as she described it.

Makes a change -- usually it is squirrel up a stick, or dangling from feeder... by daylight, and just out of her reach.

The arrival of the coons is a good reminder that Spring is really here (despite the snow) and that the bears too will be waking up and starting to look around, and all our hibernating animals wake up with an appetite.

Bird feeders -- bring them in at night!

  1. It might be time to finish with the feeders entirely, given the bears being out for spring soon.
