A day for the birds.

Was riding up Island to the ferry. Was a few minutes early, and the road was wet, so no hurry.
A couple of miles up, two Canada Goose take off from the ditch in the side of the road. One of them flew about three feet off my right elbow, before peeling off.
Further up the road, an orange shafted flicker, flew out of a field, and then about two feet in front of my windscreen. Did that for a while before flying off.
A more rare flicker is the yellow shafted bird.
Further up the road is a turkey, standing in the middle of my lane. I road up to him for a chat, but he was more interested in showing off for the girls on the side of the road. He did his show off thing, while I told him to get out of the way, which he finally did with me waving the front wheel at him.

Later I picked up some bits for the boat, and picked up my completed tax return. I now identify as broke.
Got a new phone too, as mine was doing silly things. UK

lots of deer, various budgies of various size. Little quails to eagles. Bears and cougars swim across Sansum Narrows. Caught a brief glimpse once or twice. My son saw a cougar in our yard a few years ago. Several times we had to go pick up kids from school because of cougar sitings. No wolves I know of further north. I have sighted on up near Port Hardy. I saw a pack in Jasper near camp Sight but I thought they were coyotes until I heard otherwise. Ypu can hear them calling at night. Was through Yellowstone back in May saw a couple of Grizzly quite close.
Spotting wildlife is one of life鈥檚 great pleasures.

If you have been up or down Sansum Narrows, you must be near by. We will be going that way in 023. UK
