Today hubby and I were down by the Big Qualicum River and spotted these Harlequin Ducks. These ducks can be found by fast-moving water, the Harlequin Duck breeds on fast-flowing streams and winters along rocky coastlines in the crashing surf, which exactly where Big Qualicum River is located. The female are the shabby brown and of course the male is the colourful duck. They are very nice to look at.

My husband and I were in Victoria watching my daughters field hockey game when this bird caught our attention. It appears they are Osprey nesting on the field lamps. It was fascinating watching them go back and forth to feed their young, totally oblivious to the humans below.
The other day I was out walking and came across these birds. It would appear they are Buffleheads, males and female. The males are the one's with more white, the females have a white patch on the side of their head. This photo was taken Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island.
