Scary situation happening in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, Canada, where an eighth endangered North Atlantic right whale has been found dead.

It has been a little while since my last blog, but despite being a little quiet it does not mean I have not been out exploring my patch! This week I went out with my camera, looking for the largest woodpecker in North America, the pileated woodpecker. I did a video looking for the woodpecker and explaining some of the incredible adaptations they have! Hope you enjoy it!

I ventured out of my patch to explore one of the southern Gulf Islands, Pender Island. The island has a number of rocky bays and beaches and is a perfect place for marine life, as well as birds (and lots of deer!). I had a wild couple of days exploring the island, my blog is linked below!

Last week I went to the coast of Vancouver Island to try and record a secretive and strange seabird, the Marbled Murrelet! They held a secret for many years, but what is it?

Marbled Murrelets are moving from their summer grounds out to sea for the winters. These plucky birds are able to survive a harsh winter out in the Pacific Ocean.

Migration is well underway, and here on Vancouver Island we are seeing thousands of birds escaping the Canadian winter and heading down to central and south america. I have been doing a lot of bird ringing, and have been seeing a ridiculous number of birds, I even managed to catch a glimpse of a species I have been desperate to see for a long time! Anyone else watching the birds migrate? It is a pretty amazing time of year for birdwatching!

It was announced that Tucker the conservation canine will be retiring from his job of sniffing orca poo for research. Tucker the dog helps a team of researchers to find orca poo, which is a vital resource in assessing the health of the orcas. To see lovely Tucker in action have a look at the blog, I used to see him out on the water when I was conducting my own research and it really will make your day!!
