Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

World Bird Wednesday - Photos from BC

I am not a regular poster for World Bird Wednesday hosted by Pine River Review but I knew I had to do it when I came home with these photos from our trip to British Columbia in May.  We saw so much wildlife, but the bald eagle takes the cake for posing at dinner time no less on top of the building across from the restaurant where we were enjoying our meal in Prince Rupert, BC.

We were told of a place where you can see lots of bald eagles by the waitress after the male above flew away.  So we drove to the spot and spied this one sitting on the flag pole where he belongs.   I guess its really a light pole.
This heron was watching him too.

The loons below were caught on camera a Lake Beauvert in Jasper National Park.

 Okay so the rest of these aren't birds but they were fun to photograph.
Seal in the harbor at Prince Rupert, BC.
Moose on the roadside in BC.
Elk shedding in Jasper National Park.  It was calving season.

The eagle is magnificent and the rest of the "creatures" are very interesting also. Are the elk? and why does one have a collar on?

BEAUTIFUL pictures. How cool to see all that wildlife. I've never seen a Bale Eagle in person, much have been pretty spectacular. Thanks for sharing!

There is an elk with a collar. It was in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. I assume the track the wildlife. I guess I should put labels under the animals. I'll do that now.

Wow Marcia.... Great pictures not only of the birds but also the other wildlife you saw in BC. That Bald Eagle is gorgeous --one of my fav's... Thanks for sharing.

It's funny how that bald eagle appeared because I had said to Dan that day that the bald eagle was next on my list to see since I'd seen the bears, moose, elk and others. We were at dinner in front of a big picture window and the people at the table across the aisle said look at that eagle. There it was just waiting to be photographed.

How exciting to see a bald eagle - and how nice of the waitress to tell you where to see more! The other photos are fabulous, too. I really like the big horn sheep with those mountains in the background. Amazing sights!
