This morning was spent away from the garden and on some trails up to the summit of Mont-St-Gregoire, which is an “igneous intrusion” sticking up from the flatlands of the St-Lawrence valley south and east of Montreal. Birds of the day were a low-circling male adult Goshawk overhead as we ascended and on the summit the chance to look down on four soaring Turkey Vultures. The other good birds, out of a day list of 23 species, were a number of Ravens.

Nice to get out in the sunshine.
