One of my favorite places was the Stanley Park seawall in Vancouver for the seabirds like Oyster Catchers, Pelagic Cormorants and Harlequin Ducks. It's amazing to watch a seagull swallow a starfish whole.

hmmmm that would hurt!! I have been to Vancouver, WA but never to the BC version but I have come close when I backpacked in Manfield Provincial Park down the Pacific Crest Trail intto the Pasaytan wilderness on the Washington State side, awesome country!!

Yesterday I saw five turkey vultures soaring in the sky but then I saw the road kill they were eating. It is part of their niche in nature I suppose- yuck.

No vultures up here, but the ravens and crows fill in for that niche.
The Similkameen country where you hiked is pretty spectacular, but can get very hot in the summer. Not far to the east around Ossoyos is a small desert and the only scorpions found in Canada IIRC.


Enjoy discussion!

I am getting a new camera with which I hope to take some picture of birds while I am still in Michigan and then on my way down to Arizona in the coming weeks.  I will post the pictures if they are decent when I get a chance.

Excellent, King John! There is also an animal photo album topic which I opened, so that could be handy also.

Oh great idea. I'll try to get the ball rolling in the animal photo album as soon as possible.
