The Big Melt

    This time of year, when the snow and ice begins to melt and frozen ground turns into mud, is called “break-up”.  Everyday more patches of ground and open water are visible.  Different bird calls can be heard, as birds begin to migrate back to the Robson Valley for mating and family raising, or just to stop in for a breather, before traveling further north.  
    A few seconds before I took this photo, I spooked 3 mallard ducks, who thrashed into the air, as I approached.  They were the first ducks of the year to visit my pond.
