Cool birdwatching moment in Kawartha Lakes

Birdwatching in Kawartha Lakes is a great hobby and a lot of fun!

MyKawartha shared a story of a great blue heron that caught a big fish! They said, "This fish was over two feet long. Not huge for a muskie, but for a heron this was a big fish. I wondered how he was going to turn this fish and get it down his throat, if that was at all possible. But do you know what; he did it with ease, as if he did this every day."

Great blue herons are just one of many incredible species you can observe around here. What are your favorite birds to watch? Which ones do you see on your property?
