Anatomy of an Old Tree Trunk

On one of our recent walks along the shoreline of the Arrow Lake my wife and I came across an old trunk of a tree that had been cut down more than 50 years ago. That mighty tree together with thousands of others had to go in order to clear the area for the flooding of the valley. It was a sad time for the many people, who were expropriated and driven off their land by this gigantic BC Hydro project. The venerable old tree trunk I am presenting here today has not lost its  beauty over so many years and I decided to devote the entire post to the natural splendour of  its individual parts. Enjoy.

Wild Birds of the Arrow Lakes

On today’s post we will look at the grouse, the merganser, the mallard duck, the cedar waxwing and the bald eagle. These wild birds are well established in our region and can be easily observed in the water and on land. Of course, the list of annual visitors is by no means complete. Some time in the near future I will have to present a complementary post on the osprey, the Canada geese, the blue heron, and other birds, which have made the Arrow Lakes their home. I hope you will enjoy the images.
