Great Blue Heron in flight

I drove my mother around the city this afternoon to run errands. For some reason, the key kept getting stuck in the ignition switch, which was terrible because one of us had to stay in the car at all times.

Sky-watch of the day.

So as soon as I dropped my mother back home, I grabbed my bike and headed to the dyke. Here are my photos.

One Bald Eagle inside in the nest.

While another sat on the tree next to it.

I biked all the way to Terra Nova since the weather wasn't too bad.

Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias)
Even got a decent photo of a Great Blue Heron in flight along the Fraser River.

The Gadwalls were out of the water today feeding with the Mallards. I got this photo of the male, and it was funny that the male Mallard was trying to sneak into the shoot as well.

On a totally unrelated note, there is a book titled "Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of a Continent" and it's free for download here for the next few days. I haven't got a chance to read it yet, but since it's free, why not. Enjoy.

That's a pain about the car key. Hope you can solve THAT problem soon.

Nice in flight shot of that heron.

Well, it's an old car. Or maybe I am pulling the key out in a strange position, because it works fine when my father is driving it to work. Maybe I am just not really used to the old car.

But thanks for the compliment. I like that in-flight shot myself too.
