Holiday fun

Turner and Morgan Redford and friends took advantage of the milder weather after Christmas to enjoy the outdoor skating rink in Emo. On good days, district residents can be seen skating or taking part in a game of hockey there.

Wild ride

Winter Birds

This male cardinal was spotted among the snow-covered branches in town last week. The cardinal isn’t common to Northwestern Ontario, but recently several pairs of the species have been seen here and perhaps will be included in this year’s local Christmas Bird Count, which is set to go this Friday (Jan. 2).
