All photos by Dave Kemp
Last Thursday broke a 66-year-old record cold temperature of -8.4 degrees Celsius in Vancouver, British Columbia. Meanwhile, snow just keeps falling and falling and burying the lower B.C. mainland. But my friend Dave Kemp, who lives in Fraser, south-east of Vancouver, is very close to the water and never seems to run of birds to photograph. See the Rufous-sided Towhee, above, and the Eurasian Widgeon, immediately below.
Above is a Common Merganser and below a Snipe.
