Owl Graces Rainy Walk in South Burnaby

What a treat on a rainy walk in south Burnaby — Yumi spotted this barred owl near Byrne Creek and we spoke to it gently while I fished my wee pocket Canon out for a few shots.

Yumi took the day off to work on her CPA program, and after five hours of stuffing her head decided she needed a break.

We are so fortunate to have such a lovely oasis of urban biodiversity right out our back gate!

It’s doing that ‘looking at you backwards’ thing that owls do so well.
