Christmas Shopping or Bird Photography – Tough Choice!
‘Tis the season, etc. I’m always a last day Christmas shopper. So, today, with my brother in town for a visit, off we went to the local shopping mall to do some last-minute shopping and give my 93 y.o. father a bit of exposure to all of the noises and activity that such malls can supply around Christmas time.
On the way though, as we were driving down Carling Ave, I noticed a number of cars pulled over on the shoulder. At this time of the year, that can mean a number of things including police radar traps, potential breathalyser checks under the R.I.D.E program, etc.
Of course, if you happen to see a number of people standing in the ditch at the side of the road, it might mean other things, but most certainly, when you see that all of those people are carrying cameras with long lenses, you can almost always be certain that the twitter highway has been in action and that someone must have spotted a bird of interest somewhere nearby.
