Here are a few photos of good things from our 1 week expedition on the National Geographic Sea Bird. We are now waiting at Vancouver Airport for a plane back to Michigan. It's been a glorious week with wonderful wildlife and scenic vistas over the water and towards the mountains. I'll do some specific wrap-up posts on the First Peoples, the birds, and other topics.
|Three orcas spouting. We spent a morning looking at a large pod of these beautiful creatures (also known as killer whales.)|
They live in family groups headed by the oldest female, usually the mother of the males in the group.
|We saw quite a few bald eagles.|
|And we saw crows everywhere!|
