Bruce Peninsula Bird Observatory to MacGregor Point Provincial Park

Bruce Peninsula Bird Observatory to MacGregor Point Provincial Park

The day’s drive was a fairly long one made more pleasant by the occasional whiff of the Common Lilacs that were in full bloom at this time of the year. And of course, distance is one way to judge the length of a journey and most published distances or travel times don’t apply to me anyway because I stop far too frequently for photos to be able to get anywhere in a hurry.

This old barn caught my attention because as I drove past it, I saw a couple of Turkey Vultures perched on the ridge.  By the time that I stopped the car and got my camera gear ready, they decided that they had seen enough of me and flew off.  Inside the barn, there were plenty of swallow nests but not enough light to photograph anything properly.

Although the temperatures were rising each day, the nights were still cool and sensitive specialty crops still benefited from miniature hot house treatment.
