Myrna's book launch was a great success!
A big thank you to all who came out yesterday to support my book launch! Over 60 people attended and Kerry Wood Nature Centre sold a record number of books!
I was very pleased that Fred Schutz could attend. Fred has been a life-long friend and mentor who instilled in me my great love of nature. The book is dedicated to him. Fred also has a new book out - at age 96! He is shown here signing one of his previous books for Jim Potter. The Beauty Everywhere cover photograph is of a Saw-whet Owl taken on Jim and Bonnie's beautiful property near Delburne. Many other pictures in the book were also taken at "Potter's Paradise." I am truly grateful to everyone who helped make this book possible!

The real culprits!
Our webcams have revealed the mystery of our disappearing bird seed! And here we were blaming the squirrels for figuring out how the weight activated feeders worked. We will obviously have to move the feeders higher up, out of their reach.

Getting owl nest ready for Ellie and Albert
Claudia LIpski has helped our IT wizard, Scott H, get the owl webcam ready. Her most recent job was to nidificate: she robbed a few neighbourhood magpie nests of sticks and rearranged them in the owl basket so that Ellie and Albert will have some nice renovated digs to move into. (Nidificate--to build a nest)
