While visiting Hamilton, Canada, we visited the Royal Botanical Gardens (pictures to come). We noticed a hiking trail on the map outside the gardens and decided to explore. We stumbled on an amazing place of beauty on an incredible hike. Here are some of the over 1600 pics Shey and I took.
At the main desk, they told us we could feed the “tame” birds but the store had no more bird seed. We’re thinking, “Yeah, right. Toss the seed and walk a good distance away.” We rounded a bend and a woman just handed us a bag of bird seed. We began to feed them like this.
While feeding the many animals, a ruckus broke out behind us. All the critters scattered in an instant. This Red-Shouldered Hawk (confirmation?) had landed nearby and didn’t care when we snapped photos like mad from 20 feet away. Anywhere else, we carefully seek out the animals. In this amazing sanctuary, the animals come to YOU!
