As stewards of the Natural History Center, we were in Helliwell yesterday with the older kids from the School, planting native plants in an area that is being restored to help bring back the Taylor*s Checkerspot Butterflies there.
i was asked to photograph the project.
Can*t really post any fotos of this, but i can post this one!

Around Hornby Island ~ 2019-2020 / Helliwell Nest - 2019-2020 season

Okay, i say this about all the Nests, but this Nest is in a beautiful spot.
It is a Provincial Park with a lovely & well-visited & photographed walking trail.
A lot of the trail is through the woods, then you come out onto these gorgeous high cliffs that look towards Vancouver in the distance.
On the north side of the Park you look across at Texada Island.
Then there is Flora Island, with all sorts of interesting plants growing plus a huge assortment of Birds & Water Mammals.
From Land or Water, this is a beautiful place to visit.
Pretty much any time of year except late august & all september you can find Eagles here.
There is one Nest that you see from next to the trail in the woods, where you used to be able to see right in to what the Eagles were doing.
Then that Nest fell from use & one further inland near the old bent Maple was in use.
Then one year they went next door to private property to Nest.

Last year*s topic & links to past years can be found -

Interesting video Cawatcher. I think I have heard bats before at dusk, but it's very high-pitched and I've never been sure. How lovely that you have a colony.

i*ve been seeing this female Spotted Towhee since the first week of september.
Look!
She has NO tail feathers!
Didn*t stop her from leaping to the top of this huge Sunflower, however.
i would like to get better pictures of her, but i don*t see her very often.

Wow, a new learning experience for me..
Last evening I set my camera up on a tripod The bats were talking back and forth prior to taking off to hunt insects for the evening.. Who knew we could hear them??? I did not expect them to go for the cameraeither! This is them calling before take off then taking off in flights

As we are preparing to leave for the day, one of the Eagle pair flies to the east of us a bit.

This Eagle kept looking down like this, for some reason.
