Jan 15 2013 Green Timbers, Surrey B.C.
As I walked downhill to the pond It wasn't too hard to conjure up a picture of Surrey a hundred years ago. There was the snow on the evergreens and the muted reds of the Alder was mesmerizing and then I heard BIRDS!
|My very first visit was on a hot summer day and very few birds were around.This time it was freezing, there was snow on the ground, a frozen pond and a small flock of Varied thrush.|
|The Ruby-crowned kinglet ia very inquisitive bird and can be quite tolerant of humans.|
As of today there have been 800 page page views on this blog from all over the world. It just goes to show how much interest is out there when a rare bird comes to town!
|This ruby-crowned kinglet landed very close to where I was photographing the Varied Thrush.|
QUITE A DAY, EH!
