Abrupt change in the weather

We've had an abrupt change in the weather!  All that sunshine has given way to rain and lots of it and with the warmer temperatures that of course means that the water levels are starting to creep up, not a lot yet but enough to be noticeable.

I'm going to be taking a couple of weeks break as we head out with the camper for a change of scenery.  It isn't an ideal time to be going as we are in the migration and transition stage but go we are, so there won't be any postings now until the week of the 22nd.

Keep watching....Ernie reported a Spotted Sandpiper last night and if there are going to be any shorebirds stopping by this will be the time.  Although I haven't seen any yet I hear that the American Goldfinch have been back for a week or so and the entire Fraser Valley area is inundated with Pine Siskin as they migrate north, to the point that some people are removing their feeders to keep the hoards at bay!  And lastly I don't know how many of you are aware of the Hancock Foundations nest cam on the Bald Eagle nest at Sandpiper Golf Course but I hear there is now an egg in it.  

Keep on birding......see you in a couple of weeks.
