February is the beginning of bird mating season on the Vancouver Island coastline, and everywhere you go there is evidence. Eagles are once again pairing up (they actually mate for life), fixing their massive nests, kicking away the jouveniles and renewing vows, so to speak. Song birds are beginning to sing and serenade. Shore birds are preening and showing off.
I love watching the birds, and hearing them. Eagles calling over head as I walk outside, song birds in the shrubs of my garden when I let the dog out, and shore birds bobbing on the waves when I’m at the beach. Time to wake up, world!
