ROMEO & CATS FACE

20171106-IMG_3220

That mountain range in the background is called “Cats Face”. I think it got the name from a mineral deposit on the west side.When the sun sets the light reflects off of these very shiny deposits like cats eyes.

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.

TRANQUIL CREEK

20171026-IMG_2243

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….

WASH DAY

20171027-IMG_2246

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?

Mumma bear found a fresh salmon & promptly dropped it for her cub,but the cub didn’t get to eat it.Mumma bear kept walking away & her cub dropped the salmon to keep up.

You can’t see it,but a cub was off to the right.This Sow was searching for some salmon.Many times bears will search along the shore for recently expired salmon.Much easier getting those ones than a quick live one!

GETTING HIS WINGS

A eagle will stay brown,black & white for 4 to 5 years. Camouflaging to help protect the young eagles. This eagle is around 4 1/2 years old? The tail feathers & head are not pure white.

20171024-IMG_2172

I went out today looking for any of my furry friends? I went up into Fortune Channel but couldn’t find a one out & about.I wasn’t shocked as it was high tide.Bears come out during low tide so they can overturn the rocks & get at the baby crabs.I usually find one out during high tide,but not tonight.

I always go out about three hours before sunset.Yes,I could go out earlier for the low tide but the colour & temperature (light) would be cooler.So I stick to a few hours before sunset.I find the setting & colour far more appealing!

“WALTER”

THE DAREDEVIL & DELILAH ARE BACK!!

20171024-IMG_2185

I’ve known “The Daredevil” & “Delilah”  for about 10 years now. I’ve seen them during each season down in Tsapee Narrows.(a mile east of Tofino)

For whatever reason,they took off about 4 months ago? I haven’t a clue why or where? So I was pleasantly surprised to see them back & perched together!

Now…………there is a possibility that these two “might” be two totally different eagles who have taken over this territory? I need to hang around them & watch their habits to see if they are The Daredevil & Delilah.

The male is the one on the left.
