'Twas a nice overcast day for a south shore bimble around Mont-Saint-Bruno with the Scottsman. I did backflips of joy after getting decent views of a Wood Thrush through a tunnel of branches (on the buggy Grand Duc trail) - it's been wayyy too long. There was good mix of clumsy juvies striking out on their own, and overall, it felt relatively birdy for mid-July.
