Geoffrey’s hunting diary: Jason showing off with his Beretta

Jason trying out his new Beretta SV10 Perennia Field Grade III shotgun at the Stittsville Shooting Range. Not bad for a gun he picked up from the clearance bin at LeBaron Outdoor Products. An acquaintance of Jason’s from Canadian Gun Nutz, Matthew, joined us and offered some helpful pointers on skeet shooting.

Eastern kingbird

Eastern kingbird viewed while out for a run with Hera, my friend Jason Quinn and his dog Nos, June 17, 2013. The eastern kingbird is a plucky species of flycatcher common in the area. I see a few mated pairs every spring nesting in shrubs along the Rideau River. They are usually successful at rearing their broods as they mount a spirited defense of their nest and young, driving away crows especially. The often perch on the wires in the background, watching for the insects on which they prey, snatching them out of the air.
