This oldtimer is sitting on the west side of Dufferin Street, just north of the King Ridge Marketplace. I'm guessing it's a 1937 Chevy, give or take a year ... maybe. I've no idea about whether it's for sale or not, but it's turning a few heads as they drive by.
Here's a young Northern Cardinal (left) pestering its parent for food at a feeder in our backyard. Both its parents are still feeding it, but it can also feed itself if it gets desperate enough. Cardinals can have two to three, even four broods a year. I believe this youngster is from a second brood.
Garter snakes are native to North America and go into hibernation in late October. Hibernation dens can hold hundreds of garter snakes and some will come to the earth's surface on warm, sunny, winter days to bask on rocks for short periods of time.
