The couv.

Tuesday morning I went up to Vancouver to walk the dogs and check for the Ross's Goose yet again.  I drove up Old Lower River Road where after one false alarm, I finally located the goose at a reasonable distance.  Yay!


Greater White-fronted and Cackling Geese began falling from the sky...


Sandhill Cranes too.


Seemed like a good time to get outta there with all those birds falling... So we headed over to the bike path to Frenchman's Bar.  Nothing too exciting, but here's some stuff anyway...

 Yet another photo that Blogger has decided to mess with...


Song Sparrow

A Horned Grebe at Frenchman's Bar Park seemed completely incapable of eating a fish it had caught.  I watched it swim around with the fish for a long time, and still hadn't swallowed it when I left.


And the walk back...


Golden-crowned Sparrow

 After the dog walk I drove back to the goose spot to see if the Ross's was still around.  I couldn't say for sure because hundreds of Snow Geese had shown up...


Good times!!
