I have a lot of questions on the subject of nature. I could go on forever with my questions as I am so fascinated with nature and all her wonders. Why is the hummingbird so small yet so smart?
Why are baby hawks so cute and we never get to see them at this stage?
Why are herons considered endangered when we seem to have so many of them here? I am doing a review of some of my previous photos along with my many questions for "Q" at the ABC Meme this week.
Why did the stilts not return to Vancouver Island this year? You can see a nice slide show of all the photos larger if you click on one of them.
Where are all the shorebirds this year...I saw very few of them? There were more farther out on the little islands. Where is the Snowy Egret?
I wonder what these fossils could tell me?
Where were all the terns this year?
Why did the octopus eat the seagull?
What kind of behaviour is this humpy (humpback whale) displaying while he was playing with the sea lions for hours?
How can the Marsh Wren be so tiny but so brave in protecting his nest?
Is the Waxwing the only bird to give gifts to its mate?
Why is the Western Kingbird here?
I wonder if the pelicans will return this year and I wonder how the blue banded youngsters are doing after they were flown home to California?
Why do the Lapland Longspurs always go to Cattle Point?
Will I ever meet my lovely leucistic fox sparrow again?
Why did the quail bond to a duck for his mom?
Why did the Merganser bond to this seagull?
And now for the big question of this week. When I looked at my photos taken out in the boat a few weeks ago I saw a branded Sea Lion at Race Rocks. What is this?? I even have an answer for this question.
So I wrote to Alaska Fish and Game as I thought that was a good place to start and they wrote back explaining all about branding Sea Lions and that it was not one of theirs. I got a very nice long email from the Marine Mammal Program in Alaska. This Sea Lion is two years old and was branded in Oregon in 2011. I was very upset at the size of the brand wound. I told them it is primitive and barbaric when in this techy age and they must find a better way to do this. They need the letters large to be able to spot it they say. I am not happy. But I was impressed with the Marine Mammal Program in Alaska.
That is the end of my questions on nature but I can assure you that I have plenty more.
