In the calm, shallow water between the docks and the shore, a mixed flock of diving birds was fishing among squiggly reflections of fishing boat masts.
|Bufflehead landing on squiggles|
|Same set of reflections, different bufflehead.|
|A quick stretch before the next dive.|
There were several courting couples among the goldeneyes. They get started on the nesting season early.
|Looking almost straight down from the bank. The rocks are covered with barnacles and limpets. I saw a few orange starfish, but no crabs; they're all hiding from the birds.|
|Pacific loon. These stayed nearer the open water at the end of the docks.|
*Can't trust Campbell River weather; they're promising us freezing rain for tomorrow. It's a good thing I got in a long, long walk this afternoon. And I found a new favourite spot! More on that tomorrow.
