I was surprised to find that I hadn’t had this bird before, I felt I had but had not checked …. however, Sunday morning added the Tufted Titmouse to the life list. Collected in good company – both of fellow birders and other birds – “somewhere in southern Québec” as they say. It would be nice to have this on the garden list, but they are rarely if ever seen around here.

Meanwhile, the photo of the week goes to the oh-so-cute (but not very welcome) family of mum and five kids Raccoons who invaded the garden a couple of evenings ago just as dinner was about to appear.
