We then had a flock of birds, going through the area we were in. Hermit, MacGillivarys and Nashville Warbler, last one a lifer for me. Plumbeous, Warbling and Cassins Vireo, last one, again a lifer. Mountain Chickadee was amongst the rest. Then a few calls, from the other side of the stream, made me look, i saw a raptor chasing some small birds, round and round the trees. A juvenile Coopers Hawk, nice! Don't think it caught anything before it went though?
I didn't actually get as far as the Waterfall, knee was playing up, but i was also enjoying where i was. Mark went on, and when he came back told me i had made the right decision, as it was little more than a drip!!!!! The walk back down was a rather quick one for my liking, but we were in a bit of a hurry to get San Francisco for our flight to Vancouver. Butterflies had been in short supply today, but i did manage to photograph a pair of Acmon Blues. On the way to San Fran, we stopped to get a drink and a bite to eat, in a petrol station, there i photographed a Mourning Dove.
Right lets see what Vancouver has to offer????
