Sunrise Through the Seasons at my Vancouver Fieldsite

Harold Eyster

As COVID-19 swept down around us, many of us have been forced to rethink our far-flung fieldwork plans. Thus, since June 2020, I've been conducting bird surveys locally in Vancouver. I thought that it might get boring, stuck doing surveys on random residential city blocks. But every time it's so different. Different birds, different weather, different experiences, and sometimes a sunrise. I'm excited to see what February brings.
