Today was another warm and clear day in Nanaimo, and while it may still be winter by date, it’s been feeling like spring for a while now.
Here are some pictures from a walk at Neck Point Park, one of two parks near us that I really like. The wildlife is so easy to watch here, it’s more like a zoo than a park:
As usual there were a lot of birds present, this gull was enjoying a starfish for lunch:
Some Canada geese flew by:
In spite of the pollution on the horizon, Mt. Baker was visible in the distance. This snowcapped mountain is about 165 km away, located in the state of Washington, just across the border:
Harlequin ducks showed up:
The resident kingfisher:
A bald eagle:
There were seals, sea lions and deer as well, you could easily spend a whole day here, even though the park is small it has a lot to offer.
