It was an uncharacteristically nice day here in SW British Columbia (not pouring buckets), so I grabbed the camera and headed out to the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary. Here are the results of the outing...

Some from an outing to Reifel today:

1. The always beautiful Cedar Waxwing

Thank you, kind sir!

It would seem that my hummer was mis-ID'd It is a female rufous hummingbird.
