Today we have a lower tide...I wonder about this phenomenon, in Antarctic the Ice is melting but here the water is like evaporating...Im really hoping we don't get a sudden massive water overload...I have been watching way too many programs about a possible Tsunami in the area...got to be prepare, not scared. It's scary thought...

This bird is the largest and most widespread heron in North America, the Great Blue Heron can be found in the trees, along the ocean shore or the edge of a small inland pond.
The Great Blue Heron eats mostly fish, however it is willing to eat other animals as well.
Several studies have found that mice are a very important part of the herons diet, making up almost half of what is fed to nestlings.
The Great Blue Heron is a large, gray bird with long legs and an "S" shaped neck. They have a long, thick,
yellow bill, and a black plume extending from behind the eye to the back of the neck. There are
shaggy feathers on the neck and back, with bluish gray wings, back and belly. Here in Vancouver they are seen in large
amounts at Stanley Park, they nest near the tennis courts close to the Park's Board Office.

So Yesterday was the Earth day, and here in Vancouver few cool things where happening, the one I enjoyed the most was that a car dealer was giving away trees, yeap small little trees to be planted and help our future generations...how neat is that?? ...so let's buy the cars, polute the world, but...ehh here you go plant a tree and maybe wont be all so bad... ah ah aha
Now this morning got a nicer picture than the one of the girls giving the trees away, so Im posting it instead...
The Big Blue Herons are back at Stanley Park, and they are building their nest, its still early spring so the branches of the trees are not full of leaves...which makes it easy to watch this Nature's wonder.
have a good every day earth day!

"VANCOUVER - Even if it was only high overcast and relatively mild on Sunday for the annual 10K Sun Run, it wasn’t the oppressive heat of Kenya. But that didn’t bother Willy Kimosop one bit." email@example.com
