Yesterday was our first really nice day with the temperature getting up to 15C/59F! The bushes and trees were alive with chirping birds some of which I managed to capture with my camera. Later we went and did a bit of geocaching and found six caches.

ROAD TRIP TODAY
We made a quick trip up to Salmon Arm today to deal with some tax issues. Of course I took a camera along with us. We were pretty surprised how much snow was still covering the fields and even some roofs near Salmon Arm. Way behind what we have here at home. We took the main highway to Salmon Arm but took a series of back roads on the way home.

HOUSE FINCH AND DOWNY WOODPECKER
I captured the finch yesterday afternoon and the woodpecker this morning. We got up to 12C/54F this afternoon which is very welcome.

MAN IN SKY, BIRD IN TREE
Managed to get a few shots on my walk this morning. The parasailer took off from the top of McIntyre Bluff but he didn't have enough of an updraft so he made a couple of circles then disappeared heading down to land at Covert Farms, I guess. This quail decided to pose for me. Generally they get out of sight as quickly as they can, stymying my attempts to photograph them.

BALD EAGLE HANGING OUT AT THE GAS STATION
This dead tree behind one of the gas stations on the way to Oliver is a favourite hangout for eagles.
