I always like to see wild life successfully sharing the city with people. And who can resist baby birds? In this case, a baby hummingbird who had just left the nest. Like Roger, pictured a few days ago, this baby was born in an exclusive neighborhood. Its nest was in a tree on the Inner Harbour Causeway.
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
