So there I was, sitting on a log at the new potential mink location.
I kept seeing these small birds darting along and in among the logs. In the gloominess of the area, I couldn't see any colouring, only little brown birds.
One kept walking along the fallen log in front of me, back & forth it went. Eventually, when I looked over, its head appeared strange, like its head had a growth of some sort.
"HEY DUDE, AM I PHOTO WORTHY NOW?" So I aimed my camera and the little creature came into view, complete with an insect in its mouth, bigger than its head. And much to my surprise, I had a series of photos of the Northern Water Thrush, supposedly a very shy but extremely pretty bird, probably on its migration route. Guess it wanted some recognition for its great accomplishment.
So here you are NWT!
