More Absolutely Glorious

These are more pictures from yesterday.  Today was much the same, but a little bit cooler.   On the way to work this morning I heard several red-winged blackbirds.  They’re back!

I hadn’t been to Norman Rogers Airport since 1968 when Trudeaumania 1 hit.   My mother took us out to see P.E.T. there.  I remember that there was a shuttle from downtown to the airport just for the occasion.  I remember being fascinated by an interracial couple on the bus, having seen all the civil rights news on the Walter Cronkite news.

Tonight I had an amazing wildlife sighting right outside my front window.   I heard a cacophony of crows and looked outside to see what was upsetting them.  It was a snowy owl on top of the house across the street, with an angry army of crows dive bombing it and trying to drive it off.
