Schomberg's 'treasured' Dufferin Marsh...

At the centre of the village is a refuge
Already the Dufferin Marsh is playing host to a female Goose (below) sitting on a nest atop a muskrat or beaver den, while her mate (above) patrols their nearby section of the marsh.

Three bird feeders are part of the reserves main display (above) at the entrance of the marsh, on Dr. Kay Drive.   During my brief visit, two Downy Woodpeckers (right) were doing their best to empty the feeders and were not distracted by me at all.   A more recent pond display panel (below) extolls the charms of the marsh for resident Eastern Painted Turtles and 'Snappers'.
