Bird here is environmentally-friendly and into recycling. It took a decaying tree and made a house out of it. Upon further inspection, there were bits of string hanging out of the hole as well so I can only imagine the goldmine of things for padding that had been accumulated inside. Good thing birds don't have fire marshals - there's no way insulation of fluff, string and assorted bits of potentially hazardous flammable materials would pass any fire code.
Continuing with the wildlife theme of late, here's what bear warning signs in BC look like. At first glance it looked official. I gathered it was an educational piece about how to avoid encountering a bear, and if perchance you did come across one how you should act...
... but upon reading the sign in more detail I was a bit taken aback. The municipality actually printed this?
That's right, chances are nobody speaks bear. Literally zero. In fact, more people speak Klingon than bear. But, hey, we even have wildlife overpasses in BC so it all goes hand in hand I guess!
Stick a hardhat on Deer here and give him a lunchbox and some steel toe boots and he'd fit right in alongside the construction fencing in downtown Kelowna. It was a bit odd to see a deer downtown, but this is Canada. I'm waiting to come across a closeup of a bear next.
I didn't have a glass of water here, and was thankful for that after witnessing Bird pull this unsanitary fast one. I doubt that water jugs like this are scrubbed with as much soapy and hot water fervor as plates and forks. You wouldn't think the need to. Until seeing this.
The Serpentine Fen Bird Sanctuary in Surrey was a great place with cooperative photogenic ducks to try out my new lens, the Canon 70-200mm f4. Not that the kit lens that came with my Rebel T1i isn't good, but now I can take photos of things more than an arm's length in front of me. It's very exciting.
