Happy Canadian Thanksgiving ~

My husband and I were able to have a little getaway this weekend. We went up to Blue Mountain in Collingwood. It's really beautiful up around there and the leaves are really starting to turn now.







We drove all around and also took this gondola up the mountain to see the view. These mountains are used for skiing in the winter months.



And what a view it was ....





We really lucked out because we didn't realize they had the Apple Harvest Festival on this weekend. Many activities and things to look at. One of the neat things was this "Birds Of Prey" show. It's not often you will ever get to see these kinds of birds up close.



Great Horned Owl
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Saker Falcon

This little Saker Falcon only weighs about 1/4 pound but will eat 2 mice every single day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Harris Hawk
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~





Bald Eagle
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These birds were raised by a husband and wife team who put on shows to educate people about them. They also do rehabilitation of sick and injured wild birds, research and consulting. I learned some interesting facts that I never knew. One of them was that birds don't have any sense of smell. They strictly use their eyesight to find there next meal. Which probably explains why many people are surprised to find out that one of the Bald Eagles favourite foods is the skunk~! Many of these birds have also been used in movies. The Great Horned owl was used in the movie My Bosses Daughter with Ashton Kutcher, Carmen Electra and Dave Foley.

So needless to say ... it was a good weekend even though it was freezing out! lol
