Spotted Owl Fundraider


The Northern Spotted Owl is Canada’s most endangered bird, with fewer than 30 individuals remaining in BC. At the Northern Spotted Owl Breeding Centre we are working to keep this iconic West Coast species from being extirpated from Canada. As the only breeding program for the Spotted Owl in the world we are writing the book on captive breeding for this amazing bird. Our long term goals include producing up to 20 offspring per year for release into protected old growth forest around BC.



On Monday, June 27 at 6:30pm we will be holding a fundraiser at the Townhall Pub in Langley. Tickets are $25 each and include a burger (beef, chicken, or veggie), fries, and drink. There will be door prizes, and a silent auction which includes, but is not limited to, gift baskets, passes to local attractions, framed prints, and a couple of PRIVATE tours of the breeding facility.

Tickets can be bought from any one of the NSO Breeding Program team members. We are asking that tickets be bought in advance by making pick up or mailing arrangements. Message or email us for tickets. And please tell your friends!

This is the first time we've done something like this and would really appreciate your support and to help celebrate a successful 2016 breeding season. All funds generated will go towards the building of a website that will help keep people all around the world informed about the plight of the Northern Spotted Owl and the objectives of our program.

For more information, check out the event page on our Facebook Facebook page or email nsobreedingprogram@gmail.com

If you would be able to attend, that would be great! And feel free to invite anyone you think may be interested.

Thank you again,
Jasmine
Captive Breeding Manager

Glen Valley Lazuli Bunting

June 15/16 Glen Valley BC Clouds/Rain Showers and Sun
Following the Glen Valley bird count last weekend when 53 species were noted I decided to re-visit Lefeuvre Rd to see if there were more than the one lazuli bunting. Sure enough at the bottom of the hill just where the road flattens out is a patch farmland that has been left to grow wild. Two birds. were feeding among the  blackberries and wild grasses, a favourite food for the lazuli. Along with the bunting were a pair of nesting common yellowthroat.

The Birds They Keep on Coming

June 1-14 2016 Various Lower Mainland Locations

Adult Cedar Waxwing

This house finch has what appears to be horns. Last year a similar bird came to our feeder with the very same 'horns'
I have heard that it is some kind of disease. Does anyone have any thoughts about this?


Male Lazuli Bunting. Winters in Mexico
Like the colour it's named after, the lazuli bunting is one of the most colourful birds found anywhere in North America or that case, anywhere in the birding world.
I have taken this shot from a low angle to include the blue sky and as little of the tangled blackberry bush as possible to simplify the composition. The colours found in the sky and bird co-ordinate in a way that pleases the eye.

*****

Below I have photographed the same bird and when it flew to a nearby fencepost. I noticed a barn in the background so I re-positioned my tripod to work with the contrasting colours. The 'feel' of this picture is quite different from the one above. I also used the 8x10 frame rather than the 8x12. I can always go back my raw files and re-crop if a magazine comes looking for a cover shot. When shooting stock, always leave room for the magazine editors to place their title and inside contents.

Lazuli Bunting
I used a D500 and 500 F4 with a 1.4 converter to compress the background resulting in a gentle tradition from the barn in at the top of the background to the green grass at the bottom of the image. There has be no manipulation except for cropping and sharpening.
Red-breasted Sapsucker
I have been waiting for this shot of a red-breasted sapsucker for years. Finally I was able to find a location where the background was uncluttered and the bird was in the classic feeding position. The red, black and white of the bird set against the green leaves is for me at least, perfect colour co-ordination as nature intended it and as an added bonus the image appears pleasing on the eye.

Female red-breasted sapsucker
This illustrates a sapsucker gathering food. The bird has drilled hundreds of holes in a weeping birch tree where insects including red ants are attracted to feast on the sap. Red ants make up most of the sapsucker diet.  The sapsucker then returns on a regular basis to pick off insects. While photographing the sapsucker a rufous hummingbird also came to feed on the sap.
Red-breasted sapsuckers can be found year round in BC.


Ruffed Grouse
This ruffed grouse waits to cross a logging road, note the raised crest.
Ruffed grouse winter in BC.

Rufous Hummingbirds breed in BC and winter in Mexico.

The Reifel Sandhill Crane colt at 17 days old.
The Reifel sandhills are resident year round, unlike most sandhills which migrate to the USA for the winter.

Willow flycatcher.
The only way to distinguish a willow flycatcher from a least flycatcher is by voice.
Winters in Central and South America 
It never amazes me each time I go out bird in the British Columbia. My friends and relatives in the UK tell me how beautiful our Canadian birds are and when I visit them I tell them how beautiful their birds are. Anyone who has seen a goldfinch or bullfinch would readily agree. It just goes to show there ar beautiful birds everywhere, we only have to open eyes and listen to the birds!

BCFO Birding Walks


May 27-29 2016 Cranbrook BC
 British Columbia Field Ornithologists (BCFO)
 Annual Conference Field Trips 
Day 1

There were plenty of field trip choices available on both Saturday and Sunday so I blindly put my name on the Wycliffe Rambler walk led by Ruth Goodwin. My choice turned out to be a good one.
We began on Porteous Road where we scoped long-billed curlew searching for food in the hayfield, while all around us snow capped mountains stood out against the cloudless blue sky.
On the way to our next stop we made a brief stop at a house where the owners had a feeder. In a tree a black-chinned hummingbird kindly posed for me. A lifer and the day had just begun!

Black-chinned Hummingbird.
 We left there and made our way to Twin Buttes for a three kilometre hike. We were soon into the birds, mountain bluebirds first then as we climbed the butte clay-coloured sparrows. A dusky flycatcher was a lifer for a few on the trip then a flock of six red crossbills flew overhead, we would catch up with them later on in the walk.
Clay-coloured sparrow with food for the brood.
 This clay-coloured sparrow was bringing food to the nest and singing at the same time or perhaps it was telling me I was to close and that it was time to move on...which I did!


Pine Siskin
I took three shots of this pine siskin feeding on the yellow balsam seeds, this one I prefer over the others as the bird balances under its own weight.

Red Crossbill


The flock of crossbills just wouldn't keep still but of the six shots I rattled off I did manage to catch the one above.

Twin Buttes.
Our last stop of the day was at Pine Butte Ranch where there were again plenty of birds including this gorgeous Northern Waterthrush, again a lifer for some of our group. There were high fives all around.
Out of a tangle of thickets and dead branches and from some distance I and others managed to photograph this beauty. I think it is one of my favourite shots of the weekend.

Northern Waterthrush.
Due to the distance from the bird I was able to compose a shot which includes branches, creating what photographers term a frame within a frame.


I know what your thinking, but I have never been so close to a turkey vulture. I had our chauffeur (who happened to be thesoon to be BCFO past president) slap on the brakes so I could take this quick shot from the car window. I was initially attracted by the contrast of the red head and the blue sky then I noticed the wing patterns. Had I not zoomed in so close I would have had a flight shot too but moments after I pressed the shutter the bird flew off and I was left with half a flight shot.





It was on this drive we saw a pair of American kestrels, a red-breasted nuthatch and Lewis's woodpecker nesting in the same tree. Quite possibly there may have been a starling nest too, making it a veritable bird condo. 

Day 2 Sunday May 29
Last day of the convention. 

Field Trip leader Dean Nicholson'

The weather had changed and a cold wind whipped across the spray Irrigation ponds. The birds were still around but hunkered down. Dean, our leader  had a good ear and could pick out a birds from a hundred yard away. If we didn't know how a clay-coloured sparrow sounded we sure do now!

Around one corner we came across a bank swallow colony. They seemed to making a living although the cold weather kept insects to a minimum.
Bank Swallow colony.

A bank swallow takes break from hunting insects.
Another clay-coloured sparrow because we rarely see them in the Lower Mainland and I like clean background.


Finally I would like to congratulate all those involved in organizing the BCFO conference and those who volunteered their time to make us all welcome in Cranbrook. The city and surrounding area offers some great birding, magnificent scenery and great hospitality. Try it out, you won't be disappointed.

So until the next post

Birding with Birders BCFO Extension Trip




Southern Alberta Prairie Potholes May 24-27 2016
Pre-Conference Trip.

 Prior to the British Columbia Field Ornithologists (BCFO) Conference May 27-29 in Cranbrook B.C. a group of BCFO members including myself took a three day extension trip to Southern Alberta. We met our guide Dan Arndt in Canmore. We made our way to the front ranges and foothills of the Rockies and eventually Cochrane for the night
Prior to arriving at Canmore and during a break for lunch in Castlegar I photographed chipping sparrows and a vaux swift, a lifer. I snapped off a few shots of the vaux flying overhead, that was the only way I was going to get an ID of the fast flying bird high in the sky. The cigar shaped bird could have easily been overlooked as just another swallow had I not snapped image below.


I used a Nikon D500 and a Nikon 200mm-500mm F5.6 handheld for the entire trip. Had I been on my own I would have probably used a tripod and a fixed 500mm. Joining a dozen birders proved to be a great learning experience with plenty of new friendships gained.

Below is a small selection from the extension trip.

*****

Passing through the BC Rockies on my way to Canmore I photographed the distinctive interior race of the Stella's Jay. Our coastal birds lack the same amount of white around the face and the crest is smaller. I didn't know any of that until renowned naturalist Al Grass pointed it out to me as we browsed through the files at the BCFO AGM.
Stella's Jay (Interior race)
The tour of the potholes with Dan included a mixture hard core ebirders who were counting everything, there were a few who knew a lot more than they were letting on, there were a few who had birded from childhood and there were those who finding lifers on a fairly regular basis. It was a great mix with years of experience on board and a great leader to point out regional differences in birdsong. For example the white-crowned sparrow was just one bird that sounded different than we are used to on the coast.

****

The foothills of the Bow Valley proved to be quite birdy. On one of our first stops at Barrier Lake where we had twelve Tennessee Warblers, a lifer for some, they had all of our group reaching for their bins. We ended with 37 species, a great start to the trip.

Moving onward and downward to the land of cheaper gas we passed ponds with breeding spotted and solitary sandpipers, fields with Western bluebirds and wet marshlands with red-winged blackbirds, sora and nesting ruby-crowned kinglets. Good views of Northern waterthrush provided a lifer for a number of the group.

Rose-breasted Grosbeak

at
we found sixteeen species including a white-throated sparrow singing away at the end of a branch, a Wilson's snipe and the most common warbler of our entire trip, the Tennessee warbler.
 
White-throated Sparrow singing over its territory.
The first half-day of the birding tour was beginning to wind down. Tomorrow we would be rising at 4.30 a.m. to search for Le Conte's sparrow and yellow rail. 

Day 2 May 25 2016
As promised we were all up, bleary eyed and raring to go and on the road by 5 a.m. We were just aboit to embark on a 16 hour birding day, the stuff of dreams!

We arrived at 
It was still dark when we arrived at Horse Creek Road. As soon as our eyes adjusted to the light we were serenaded by a symphony of bird sound. It was magical to hear the yellow rail, a rare species that many have never seen and many will never see. Only one of our group had ever seen one but we were able to hear it 'tic-tic tic-tic' similar to two pebbles being knocked together. One of our group told the story about how one had landed near to him at a logging camp not once but twice.
One of the birds a number in the group wanted to add to their life lists was the Le Conte's sparrow. The diminutive sparrow likes undisturbed wet pastureland. As the sun peeped over the horizon and the fog lifted a few sparrows including savannahs sunned on the barbed wire fence, one was different, a Le Conte's. If we were to use calls to bring in birds they were to be used in very small doses and we were lucky when after a few seconds our bird arrived in front of us to see who was threatening his territory. 

Le Conte's Sparrow

As the day warmed and the light quality improved there were a number of good birds to observe.
A Wilson's Snipe sat on a fence post and small flock of Wilson's Phalarope flew overhead.

(Below) There is always a notion with bird photographers to get as close as possible especially when encountering a species for the first time. Sometimes though all we land up with is a bird on a stick or fence pole and little or no information about habitat. I have numerous pictures of snipe on fence post already so I thought I'd try to be a little more creative and shoot from a lower angle and include more of the scene.

Wilson's Snipe
In the above photo I could have tried to get closer to show the birds details better but how many of those shots do I already have or need. Here I have tried to place the viewer with a visual cue with the fence post on the left anchoring the image. In Western culture we read left to right so our brains are trained to look at images the same way. The bird is in the center of the frame forcing the eye past the bird to the last last two posts and then back to the bird. If this engages the viewer for more than three seconds then I have been successful. In a world where we are bombarded with fantastic on a continual basis it's all a photographer can ask for.

Sora.
It was a good morning with plenty of good birds, good company and glorious weather. The day before we had all arrived in Alberta there had been a late spring snow fall, fortunately it had all melted by the time we started our tour.

Day 3 May 26 2016


Our group arrived at Kinbrook Island around 7 a.m. Four mule deer grazed at the entrance. An American white pelican flew overhead while clay-coloured sparrows and Western Meadowlarks were in full song.
Western Meadowlark.

Least Flycatcher.
Past the pond and just by the park office we parked our cars. The campground was very birdy. Swainson's Thrush, American redstart, house wren, red-eyed vireo, brown thrasher, Baltimore oriole, cedar waxwing and more.

Red-eyed Vireo in the campground.
I was particularly happy to photograph the red-eyed vireo as it hopped from branch to branch picking off insects. I must have shot thirty frames to get two of three satisfactory images.

Brown Thrasher.
The brown thrasher was probably the most vocal bird in the campground

     Day 4  Oldham River May 27 2016
 Our tour finally ended in Pincher Creek and the last day produced some nice birds including the two below.

 I ended the trip with three lifers not including the yellow rail which is a heard only tic. The countryside was amazing, the company evem better and the last but not least the birding was second to none thanks to the fine weather and an excellent guide whose contact information is below.
