The Outdoor Club's latest outing
To Sunflower Hill
Was memorable for all the wildflowers in bloom
Including the balsam root.

They were everywhere

Even at the top of the hill,
From where we could see
The St. Mary River
Making its way to the Kootenay River
Running south
Along the foot of the Rocky Mountains.

This is a white sturgeon
From the Kootenay Trout Hatchery
On display at the Kootenay Children's Festival.
It will eventually be released into the Upper Columbia River.

It's almost a year ago to the day
That a hummingbird started building a nest
On a wind chime at a student's home
As it has done for the past three years.

Two days later
It laid an egg,
Followed by a second
The following day.
Now we just need to wait
For about two weeks
Till the chicks hatch!!

An afternoon walk to Elizabeth Lake
During which several animals were spotted
Including ants, beetles,
Mallard ducks, ruddy ducks, coots,
Canada geese,
Red-winged blackbirds,
Western painted turtles,
And Columbia ground squirrels.
But for most of us the highlight was
Seeing a gosling feeding with its parents
By the creek.

A walk to Elizabeth Lake
After a night of heavy rain
To check out signs of erosion
Like this deep channel
On a downhill back alley.

Hydro power was powerful enough
To blast off this manhole cover!

We wonder what else
Was washed into storm drains?

It's a time to gather round and watch the fun!

Mr. Wilson has told us about a hummingbird,
Which has returned,
And built a nest
On a wind chime
At the home of a student he taught last year.
Click on image to download
Soon after building this tiny nest,
Mother Hummingbird laid an egg,
Then a second the day after.
She has sat on the eggs
For almost two weeks.

Two days ago the first chick hatched.
