Many birds are passing through Tofino right now.It’s the Fall migration south.These are “Dusky” geese. A sub species of the much larger Canada Goose. They are heading down into Washington State & Oregon for the Winter.Breeding grounds are in Alaska.(Copper valley)
I took this shot down in Tsapee Narrows.This is “The Daredevil” & “Delilah”. They’ve been gone for months! I haven’t a clue where they went? Delilah is the one on the left.
I went camping for 5 days up in Tranquil creek.The salmon are running & the bears are grinning! I’ve been keeping a eye on the run & it looks like it’ll be coming to a end in a few weeks.Than my furry fiends will go for their winter nap.
Each day I had up there was magical! I couldn’t believe all the beauty surrounding me in oh so many ways.From the eagles flying over head,to the bears cruising looking for a tasty treat to the sound of a lone owl calling out in the night just to say goodnight!
I walked upstream with hundreds of salmon swimming all around me.With many bears walking around me.Seeing,breathing & hearing all of life dancing around me is what it’s all about….
I was in the forest when I heard some flapping out front in the water! I went to investigate & found this immature eagle having a bath.Looking at the markings,I’d say this is a one year old?
