Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis)
I went to the Fletcher Wildlife Garden today hoping to see some birds (especially this one recorded from two weeks ago). I did not see the owl but ended up seeing many regular wintering species, and most of them were hanging around feeders or trees with fruits.
Yesterday I went to downtown Vancouver with my mother to get Compass Cards for public transportation. While we were waiting to cross the street in Chinatown, I was shoved to the ground from behind by a random drunk/addict walking by. I don't come to downtown Vancouver often, but for whatever reason, I always left with a bad taste for this part of the city whenever I do come.
After the incident, we took the sea bus to North Vancouver just to get away from Vancouver.
