Seen this morning: a black squirrel leaping from the side of a house on to the top of a fence, where it dashed along, hurdling the fenceposts.

Birds seen in the last few days:

A baby crow huddled against a tree. (Girlfriend spotted that, looking because there were crows making their eff off from our baby call.)

Starlings I wanted to chase.

Something sparrowish with white stripes over the eyes. (I haven't looked it up.)

More than one robin.

Seagulls of course.

A cormorant. (Partner pointed that out.)

Saw a Hummingbird today! It was in a back garden flying around a Fuchsia.

This afternoon included standing under a tree, watching a crow who was in a half-built nest and tipping it shead considering where to best put the twig in its beak.

I saw a Steller's Jay. He called on the short fence behind me before flying over the road into a huge evergreen.

Saw a raccoon dashing at a surprising rate of speed, but as it was in the dark going across the road it was a good thing it was moving fast.

I went to a meeting at the edge of Stanley Park tonight, and had a close sighting of a raccoon. She did the hanging around to see if the humans were doing anything interesting thing, then climbed a tree and sat up in a fork, watching in case anything interesting was to be seen from that higher angle.

Coyote?

I may have just seen a coyote. Might have been a stray dog, but the geography's not implausible (if more urban than I'd expect) and it was certainly a light brown canid with a bushy tail carried low, and it was unhurriedly trotting down the sidewalk on its own business.

Context being I was walking home from the library with a couple of books I wanted to bring home as I may offer to write them for Yuletide.

Crow

I saw a crow this morning sitting on what was pretty much a sapling. The crow had this look of "I'm just hanging around, yeah, this is a tree, it's sort of bendy but I'm fine." Then I moved too fast and startled it so off it flew.

Crows grooming

Heard croaking and looked up: there were two crows on a power line, and one of the crows was grooming the other. Sweet to see.
