Today I received a pleasant surprise - my first piece of writing on a stone. Caleb presented me with his story about being a bald eagle, which he had carefully written on a rock with a sharp stone, which he had found while out for a hike with his family on the weekend. It was written on both sides.

"If I could fly like a bald eagle, I would fly up in the sky and dive down and feel the wind in my feathers. Then Id catch a fish. When I got to my nest, I would eat it up. Then I saw some road kill. I just about got hit by a car and mist (missed) my meal."

Great news about the chicks born in Delta!!

Yesterday we heard the story of How Raven Brought Light to the World. Here are some of the students' drawings of raven in the Haida style.

Today we walked to Elizabeth Lake to plant some pussy willows near one of the storm drain outlets. As we walked around the lake, we noticed a large flock of coots with their white beaks and black feathers floating in a bay sheltered from the wind. As we were planting the pussy willows, a bald eagle suddenly appeared from the opposite side of the lake and swooped down towards surface of the water. Birds quickly flew off to safety. Just as quickly as it had appeared, the eagle made towards the forest further along the shore. Although we searched, we were unable to find where it had landed. This is one field trip that we will all remember!!!

We used a weed pulling tool to dig a hole deep enough to plant the pussy willows.

The bear marks on the cottonwoods looked impressive.

Hi Mr. Wilson,
I'll bet there was as lot of excitement when the eagle flew over ! I still get excited each time I see it.
I'd love to know where it goes and if it has a nest somewhere nearby.

I took a walk to Elizabeth Lake this morning and spotted this red-winged blackbird singing away.

Nearby were a pair of ruddy ducks and a coot.
