This month, I thought I would let the pictures do most of the talking, so to speak. There isn’t much logic to my choices, aside from the fact that I hope these photos represent a small, but characteristic sample of birds from Canada’s southern Pacific coast in the spring. All of these pictures were taken this April by the author with a Nikon D5200 and the lens specified in the caption.
