The Unexpected Birder

The realization that I had become a full blown birder was very unexpected. It became evident recently when I went looking through my photo files for some shots of buildings and discovered the majority of my files were centered around birds.

Chemainus Gardens

Cim’s book, Chemainus Gardens, The Beauty of the Seasons, is a 130-page coffee table book of photographs that capture incredible moments as plants and creatures reveal their stories and secrets over the seasons.

As part of that job I spent many long hours repairing and repainting large murals. After a day on the “wall” more painting was the last thing I wanted to do so I would grab my camera and head out to the beach or a local park RV park. Birds seemed to be plentiful in both places and I liked catching them in their own habitat.
