A Month of Yellow Things
Seawall to Olympic Village
With the Covid-19
outbreak, you have to consider every trip outside - will there be
crowds? Will there be line ups? It was a beautiful
weekend and we desperatly needed some outside time and exercise so
we decided to run and scooter down the seawall to the Olympic
Village. Our first stop was Granville Island to see all of
the baby Canada Geese.
The kids brought one scooter between them and Nara mostly ran
Seeing the Hoardings Downtown
A lot of businesses are closed and some of them have put wood
over the windows to prevent damage while they are
unoccupied. Some of those hoardings have been painted with
murals with support. On a quiet day we decided to go out and
take some photos.
The kids love days at the beach. It's a bit strange seeing
everyone at the beach all spread out, but people were trying their
best at social distancing.
Claira wanted to see horses so we went to Southlands for a scoot
and to watch the horses walk by.
Kids at Lost Lagoon, Stanley Park
Walk at Lost Lagoon, Stanley Park
Last weekend we went to Lost Lagoon for a
walk walk. This weekend the weather said wet day except for
bit in the morning so I went early to get a walk in. I was
quite surprised to find all the wood ducks napping. They
weren't sleeping deeply because crows and Canadian geese were
around and bugging, but the ducks did look like they were trying
As I walked further around the lagoon, I
was surprised to see a Cinnamon Teal - quite a red duck in roughly
the same plan as the Mallard. This duck seemed quite alert -
the Mallards near by were preening but this bird was look around
attentively and when a sea plan flew overhead it bolted.
The real reason I wanted to come to Lost Lagoon instead of
different location was because I saw an American Goldfinch playing
in the grass last weekend. I was hoping that if I came back
I would see the same behaviour and sure enough, at the same place
was a Goldfinch eating seeds. The bird was relatively
patient with me.
Near the end of my walk I saw a Chickadee fly up into a
tree. Nesting. I was hoping to see babies asking for
food but they seem to be too deep down. I'm quite surprised
that this nest is viable with so many squirrels in this
neighborhood, but the Chickadees were there and feeding something.
