This week’s photo is another from my recent trip to Sidney, BC. This was also taken along the waterfront near the Bevan Avenue Fishing Pier. The really interesting thing about this photo is the band on the left bird’s leg. From my research this bird was fitted with coloured bands as part of a now completed study of the seasonal movement of Black Oystercatchers. You can see more photos from Sidney on Flickr.
