Mount Robson Park

beautiful spot and not enough time to explore it -- Varied Thrush feeding young in the river valley woodlands, one of several singing Dusky Flycatchers here, another new bird, but the stars of the site were the Rufous Hummingbirds -- a cracking male was defending the feeder against other males but allowing females to feed -- in 2014 I couldn't understand why we didn't see any males on Vancouver Island in late June - July but I should have read the books -- when males have mated and the females are sitting the males depart early and head back south to Mexico leaving the females to rear the young -- Ravens feeding in the car park was novel
