A Pleasant Urban Refuge for Birds

We love to gather up the family and take a short ride to the Lost Lagoon  any beautiful day.

Lost Lagoon remains a pleasant urban refuge for birds

We are very fortunate to have access to a large surface of water where ducks, geese, blue herons, seagulls and pigeons take refuge.



We saw them landing, sitting or swimming on the water, fishing and trolling for food: small fish, insects, grubs ... and chips, peanuts or biscuits ;-)  (because people really enjoy to feed them!!!)

Indeed, as the plaque reads:   "Humans greatly influence waterbird habitat"... but "Lost Lagoon" remains a pleasant urban refuge not only for the birds and native plants... outdoor lovers will always find a way to spend couple of hours birdwatching and walking on the sidewalks.

So, anytime when we are wondering alongside the Lost Lagoon pathways, we are taking another set of pictures, hoping to obtain another good shot even closer to them... to photograph their eye's view or their movements on the water?!

 Sometimes the walking dogs bark loudly to scaring them ;-)  The flocks may suddenly fly in the air and wing their way across the trees...

Well ... this is happening in the beautiful days, like this one.

For the rainy ones,  when we can not take a Lost Lagoon's sightseeing tour, we are just daydreaming in our room, looking at our "indoor refuge". We tried to recreate a part of this wild beauty and this time I'd like to share with you this ficus benjamina tray landscape. If you look closer, you can even see the grass growing
