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.

Loons on the Lake

Of course my closest views yet this year of a pair of Common Loons off the Point were twenty minutes before a conference call, arghhhhh, so what's one to do?? 

Set the timer, and run!

It's always wonderful to see them so relaxed as they enjoyed the peaceful waters: 

Time for one to stretch those glorious wings, while the other preferred to dive:

What made this brief encounter so precious is there are fewer Loons on the lake this year when compared to last, so I shall treasure them accordingly. 

Even if and when there is a time limit! 

And yes, I made it back in time for my conference call...
