The National Capital Commission organized a free bird of prey demonstration today at Lac Philippe. Papa and the
boys met us at Breton beach for a picnic and the show.
It was Uncle Craig's birthday so Papa took a photo of our birthday picnic and emailed it to the birthday boy.
Before the show we were able to see a Harris's Hawk and ask questions about it (it lives in the southern
in a desert habitat).
During the show we also saw a Barn Owl, a Kestrel, a Great Horned Owl and a Bald Eagle. David was particularly attentive.
Samuel also enjoyed the show but also had a little rest during part of it. Interestingly, two of Barbara's colleagues from work, Pierre and Isabelle, got into a picture with the sleepy Sam.
After the show, Papa took David home for his nap and Sam came with us into
Wakefield for an
ice cream cone - dark chocolate and raspberry. We had a fun walk along the
river and the old railway track.
Back at home, the boys' friend, Levi, biked over - he's just three and an excellent cyclist! Sam's good friend, Ross also came over for a play.
