Sky-watch picture of the day.
March is here, meaning Spring is less than a month away, and it sure felt like Spring today with the warm temperature and other clues.
Warbling and/or presence of American Robins may be a sign of Spring for people in many areas. Not here in Vancouver though, since they are common all year round. Read more about them here (by Huckleberry Days).
Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis). Juncos are considered "snowbirds" of the mid-latitudes because they appear only during wintertime in eastern US. As spring arrives, they will return back to the mountains. Again, this does not apply to us here in Lower Mainland neither.
A breath-taking sight when hundreds of Snow Geese fly over you. And you also hope none of them will poop on you.
I will surely miss these humble-looking animals as Winter leaves. Birder's Lounge had just posted an informative post regarding the overpopulation situation of Snow Geese here. I hope a more justifiable solution(s) will be implemented other than culling these beautiful birds.
