Wait just a minute I said to myself as I came to a stop in the middle of the road (You can do that in Coal Harbour). That looks like one of those tame little birds you see everywhere in Hawaii! So I backed up, put the Sigma 120-400 on the camera, got out and took a few shots.
I'm thinking to myself this has got to be global warming finding one of these little fellows up here in Canada all by it's self.
Later on when I got home I dug out the bird book and with disapointment came to find that my little bird was a Mourning Dove and not a Zebra Dove as is found in Hawaii. Though I'm sure you can apreciate my confusion!
