It was a perfect day for a walk on the mountain - sun shining and brilliant blue skies. The air was cold, but the walking kept us warm.

All winter the bird feeders are filled to keep the feathered population well-fed all winter. It's odd how some feeders were deserted and others attracted a crowd. This one was very busy.


Chickadees flitted back and forth from the nearby trees oblivious to the people watching or passing by. The constant movement spilled seeds onto the ground.

A resourceful chickadee feasted below along with a plump squirrel. What a delight to watch these creatures.

And then we were off continuing our walk around the summit. The lives of so many Montrealers are intertwined with memories of time spent on the mountain. It's our oasis in the middle of the city.
