Hancock here: Some of our long time keeners will remember that one of our first web cams was at the Stanley Park Herony back in 2006 and 2007.
Many of you will also know Martin Passchier from his exquisite images of the Vancouver bald eagle nests that he frequently visits. Some of them can be seen in the Lafarge and Vanier nest discussion forum threads here on our website.
Now Martin has teamed up with Julie Emerson to do a fine introductory book, "The Herons of Stanley Park". As you would expect the images are all totally fantastic, each carrying the Martin insight.
If you also love our Herons you will want this fine primer. Last week I was out at the Tsawwassen Heronry with its eagle nest and the seasonal action is well underway.
While the text of this is meant as a kids book, the images will be appreciated by all. It is available from Wild Birds Unlimited (Vancouver and North Van), Reifel Bird Sanctuary, Nature House in Stanley Park, Kidsbooks Vancouver, Albion Books and Amazon.ca for $12.99. The Stanley Park Eco Society will receive 5% of the profits of this book.
