Yay, I've seen my first wild bald eagle. I saw them three times before I could believe it was the correct ID. They are very cool!
My husband said, "It shouldn't count since you're in Canada--it isn't their national bird!" but I didn't let him spoil my joy!
I'm on Vancouver Island for a week and adding lots of new birds to my life list. We're in a small town on the west side called Tofino for a conference. So far I've added 15 new species to my life list.
I'm not the only one here in Tofino birdwatching--Steve Martin, Jack Black, and Owen Wilson are here filming a birdwatching comedy called "The Big Year."
