Snow In Quarry
Snow at the beginning of November is very rare for Vancouver - none of it stuck to the ground here. Further inland, some did stick.

Barred Owl Low In Cedars
You can see the owl only a few feet off the ground. He is trying to sleep - eyes mostly closed, but did become more aware when dogs on leashes walked by.
Species: Strix varia (Barred Owl)

Satyr Anglewing On Chewed Leaf
4pm on a warm day is not a good time to take photos of butterflies - they move too much! This guy was pretty patient.

Barred Owl Looking At Me
Those claws (talons) really are for killing. Both time I saw the birds, I saw them fly to the ground to investigate things - I suspect look for small mammals.
Species: Strix varia (Barred Owl)

Barred Owl Side View
Getting under the canopy to get a photo was easy - getting a clear shot without branches in the foreground took a little bit of maneuvering. When I wasn't moving, the bird basically ignored me.

My camera is in the shop - this photo was taken with my wife's camera.

Ruby Crowned Kinglet With Pollen Mustache
I believe the orange on their features around it's beak is from the Pollen in the tree. Lots of birds had that bright colour.
Species: Regulus calendula (Ruby-crowned Kinglet)

Orange Crowned Sparrow In Cherry Blossums
These are small birds, but were pretty common - I think I counted four in one tree.
Species: Oreothlypis celata (orange-crowned warbler)

Townsend's Solitaire
Apparently Townsend's Solitaire likes the steep banks, cliffs and overturned roots. This particular one was in the large quarry area.
Species: Myadestes townsendi (Townsend's Solitaire)

Female Annas With Red Alder
This bird was doing something with the Alder - I wasn't stopping at Blossums. We figure it's either sap, bugs or spiderweb it is looking for.
Species: Calypte anna (Anna's Hummingbird)
