My brother-in-law spent the last two and a half months with my wife & I while fighting cancer. His last wish was to spend what time he had left with family and friends. He passed away peacefully with us at his side last Saturday afternoon.
On my first walk since his passing, I headed out to Boundary Bay.
There were lots of Dunlin around this afternoon.
They were spread out along the beach as far as I could see.
While some groups were skittish,
… these birds were a little more at ease allowing me to get fairly close.
Mixed in with the Dunlin were numerous Black-bellied Plovers.
Some cooperative shore birds and a much needed relaxing walk along the beach.
