A beautiful, sunny day,
Perfect for a bike ride to the Mission.
But what a surprise awaits ...
An osprey nest,
Taken over by a Canada goose.
In fact two such nests have changed ownership!

While watching two herons,
They take to the air,
Spooked by my presence,
Or something else?

Perhaps the bald eagle
Had something to do with it?

Two snow geese have appeared overnight.
They dine with Canada geese
By a flooded grassy area at Elizabeth Lake.

A male redhead proudly shows off his colours,
But never gets too close to shore.

His partner may lack his bright plumage,
But she is less shy,
And ventures closer to the floating dock.

We're so lucky
To live in such a beautiful area.
Earth Day 2012 provided special memories...
