Not a far trek from my dwelling, I decided one overcast afternoon to take a walk into Laurier Woods. I had just purchased a camera and memory card and was eager to take some photos. No, not even grey skies threatening to rain would sway me. I was motivated - this was happening, now! Being ignorant to the fact that this is 120 acres of forest and wetlands (which is quite surprising considering it is situated only 5 minutes from downtown North Bay), I made my way into Laurier Woods. Unfavourable weather and occasional trickling rain made this partiuclar trek impossible to spot any birds. Here is my photo gallery. Laurier Woods is managed by the Friends of Laurier Woods Inc. and the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority.
