Inspiration #4: Pacific Northwest Rainforest Birds

 A recent trip to the Ecology Center at Lynn Canyon for this inspirational moment... we will see where it leads! I do like to use birds in my work but know that the bird trend has been a little over-saturated at times.  But then I get up-close to an owl or canary and I'm smitten again.  BTW the birds under glass at the Ecology Center supposedly died of natural causes.  And when Sasha was looking on the forest floor for bugs for our nature walk he found a dead baby bird.  I guess the recent storms we've been having knocked that little one out of it's nest. 
A little bit about Lynn Canyon.  Please check out the link- it's got a virtual tour of the park, which has a Suspension Bridge and beautiful tall rainforest trees.  We live about 10 minutes away from the park and try to go as often as possible. It's become the latest tourist trap in summer- since it's free to go on the suspension bridge it's 'Vancouver's best kept secret that's gotten out'.  Hopefully they keep it free for years to come.
