Little Tribune Bay is a lovely spot!
A sandy beach with rocky shores on either side, a big River that comes pouring down through the beach when the rains get going in the fall & winter, & fronted by lovely grassy farm fields that sometimes have Cows grazing, & usually have Canada Geese as well.
The beach is clothing optional!
In spite of the people action in this territory, there is an Eagle Nest here.
There are very few large Trees down there, so the Nest Tree is relatively easy to spot.
i*m not sure if the pair here had Eaglets last year.
You can read last season*s topic, & there are links to all the previous seasons here.

It was a lovely sunny day so we went for a walk along Little Trib!
The lighting was perfect for photographing the Ducks that had blended in with the rocks when we first arrived.

Look at the floating bubbles behind the male in this one!

It took just the right timing to catch them with their heads above water.

I betcha the 'clothing optional' doesnt get much excercise at this time of year.  eek! lol
There is something special about the way  photographs appear so crisp and clear on a cold and sunny winter day.  The colours also  seem much crisper.  nod  That blue drop is incredible!  Thank you

Yesterday it was cold so we went seeking the Sun & a bit of warmth at Little Tribune Bay for our walk.
We were sitting on a log in the Sun & i was trying to photograph American Wigeons & Black Oystercatchers in the lovely light when i spotted a strange Bird flying over head.
i think they were a Peregrine Falcon!
Flying north over High Salal then disappearing.
There was a sighting with a foto recently near the ferry i believe.

Seeking Sun & warmth we went for a walk on Little Tribune Bay.
There were Black Oystercatchers!
This one only had one leg!

Kidding, of course, the other is tucked up against their belly, resting & warming.
You can see it in this foto.



Action shot!
One is stepping & the lower one is stretching both wings.

Love these Ducks, they never are still & it is hard to get their heads above the water.

Lovely water in these.

Love seeing that stripe of bright green under the wing!

We were leaving, but the Black Oystercatchers landed very close to us!

This is the closest i*ve ever been to one.
