Welcome to Amherst Island

Amherst Island is located in Lake Ontario west of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The island is part of Loyalist Township in Lennox and Addington County. Amherst Island is located about 3 kilometres (2 mi) offshore from the rest of Loyalist Township and access to the island is by way of the Frontenac II ferry from Millhaven.

The main population centre on the island is the village of Stella, which is the where the ferry lands on the island side. Harrowsmith Country Life  declared the island’s local hamlet, Stella, as one of the “prettiest towns in Canada”.

This page is offered and maintained by the Amherst Island Community Alliance.

Northern Shrike, Immature, Amherst Island, Ontario
When the owls aren’t co-operating, there are always other birds of interest, but a northern shrike? What a find. Great eyes, Laura! We also watched an adult hunting, and it was successful.

Fox, Dry Stone Wall, Amherst Island, Ontario
This fox was on the hung in and around the beautiful stone fence. We had come to Amherst Island to bird, specifically for owls, and saw a few dozen, but they were all at a distance.

Cedar`s Staff Report

Attention, attention everyone!!

This is Queen Cedar speaking.

Yes, the rampaging regal redhead, the belligerent bey bovine, the tremendous tsarina of Topsy.

I am your horny high-queen.

I am highland cow.

I, Cedar have decreed that Willow shall have the morning off so that I may offer proclamation.

🌲

We have been told that there are still a few spots open for the Tree Grafting workshop in March.

Facilitator stephenkapusta does a great job instructing - participants will go home with their own tree to plant.

Your Queen does so enjoy fruit.

The court vizier Ian did recently have a premonition of Willow choking on a whole apple, so we will be instituting a "cut fruit before feeding" policy.

Willow can be tedious but we have grown accustomed to her presence.

👨‍👩‍👦‍👦

Family Day - we were pleased to have visitors come to visit me.

Some of the young, bare-faced were even permitted to be photographed with us.

They shall tell their great grandchildren about the day that the great and glorious Cedar offered her flank for a scratch

🚜

The farmers have reported a successful test of their new Kubota snow plow.

We approve of this upgrade because it will allow a more efficient delivery of food and treats by my hoofmen.

The farmers are making a video of how this new tool came into our possession.

We approve of this as their written stories can be ever so long.

They do take so many words to say even the simplest thing... Ahh two-leggers can be so tedious

🐑

The shepherds report: the flock is wintering in among the juniper trees on the western edge of my kingdom; a place known as The Bluffs.

The wool is growing especially thick right now.

🐕

There are too many dogs in your Queen`s proximity.

We do so much dislike nasty dogs.

They are all paws and tongues and chase-chase.

Willow, Willow, come now.

Willow, I must not have any nasty dogs near me today, do you understand.

We are not afraid.

Never is royalty afraid.

Willow shall spear them off.

That will be all for today Willow.

See that my humans bring us corn and apples.

I shall retire for the afternoon.

A trip to Amherst Island with lots of hawks, owls and more. Needed a little editing break but the next video will be released Tues Feb 20th.
Watched this Red-tailed Hawk pounce on some prey, but I think it was a near-miss. Maybe next time.
