Oystercatchergirl kisses an oystercatcher!

Thanks to a generous invitation by Peter Clarkson, biologist with Parks Canada in Pacific Rim National Park (and oystercatcher and harlequin duck aficionado), I got to partake in a day of bird banding with his team on an isolated island off Bamfield on Vancouver Island. Here I am, cuddling my favorite bird! (Peter on right.)

Lots of pigeon guillemots, too!

Oystercatchergirl's art cards are now available at Tofino Sea Kayaking, 320 Main Street, Tofino, BC.
