Say Jay...

The ShorePine Bog Trail in Tofino( Pacific Rim National Park)must be one of my favourite places on this earth. It is a boardwalk over a swampy area with pine trees. You feel like you're the only person on earth when you're there. It has a fairytale-like feeling. The first time I was there it was a bright blue sky and we heard young eagles crying for their mother. This time it was cloudy, but the bright green pine trees were radient nonetheless. We also had a good look of this Steller's Jay, that was still figuring out if it was interested in us or not. He(or she) came closer, and then he changed his mind and took a few hops back. Then we continued our hike, and it came back again. We took a few photographs, and although he was close, there was always a branch in the way. It looks like he is the gothic cousin of the blue jay. I think it is a pretty amazing bird!
