Totally captivated in 2007 by the live camera feed of the Hornby Island nesting Bald Eagles in B.C., I was drawn into birding and have never looked back. Thus begins my account of what I'm fortunate enough to discover each day and perhaps capture with my camera.

Robert decided he wanted to see what all the Osprey hoopla was about after hearing how successful last week-end's jaunt up there was with Ann, so on the spur of the moment we headed off in the early-afternoon. Saw numerous Turkey Vultures on the way up, and the further north we got on hwy 28, the more OSPREYS we saw, final tally for the few hours we were there came in at 12. Didn't take too many photos, tho, as the W wind was a deterrent and eventually sporadic showers sent us packing. At the first nest from last w/e was a kettle of Ospreys, no doubt moving back into town from their southern wintering grounds. Here's a sampling.
