Snow Birds

This long weekend it snowed in Vancouver, which is a rare event. I ran out like a little kid during the Great Backyard Bird Count to find some birds. In the short 10 min drive from my house I saw 2 accidents on the road. Vancouver drivers don't handle the snow well...

Here are some of the fruits of my labour...
