Red-tailed Hawk


Pete found a weak, limping Redtail Hawk beside his driveway near Hyacinthe Bay.  He took it to the wildlife rescue folks who say it is weak from hunger, and they'll help it out until spring.

Update January 25; Mountainaire rescue says he doing well and expected to make a full recovery.  Turns out he had a parasite.  They had another hawk in with the same symptoms.  We are hoping that when he is well enough to be released back into the wild that they can go get him and bring him home.

Photo of Heriot Bay , Christmas Day afternoon.  The Heriot Bay Inn is prominent, and the landing for the ferry to Cortes Island is to the left. Shamra and I are here on the HB side of Quadra, enjoying meals and company with friends and relatives. 


View of Mt Doogie Dowler, which is located on a mountainous mainland peninsula such that if you came down on the opposite side from what you see here, you would be in Bute Inlet. 
Here is a link from the Norwegian ( ! ) weather agency giving the hourly weather forecast, for those considering climbing it.
