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.

Swallows, second time around

 a second hatch!
They fill the barn with song, twittering and calling. They fill the barn with wings. They fill my heart. It horrifies me that they are now a species of concern, due to pesticide use and habitat loss. They eat 700 mosquitoes a day, they HAVE to catch insects in flight. They do no harm to anyone, and are beautiful beyond belief. With these five nests, we will add about 15 more to the sky. Fingers crossed for a safe migration. The photos of the hungry mouths are by Brendan Jaekl. This was yesterday. They are all out of nest today. (the adult bird photos are from Brian Floyd)
