A large flock of birds caught my eye at the end of Stump Lake in the Nicola area. They turned out to be yellow-headed black birds and a large number of White-crowned Sparrows picking at grain that had been spread around the edge of a pull out. One of the most interesting things I have found about photographing birds is that using the vehicle as a bird blind allows for some amazing opportunities. You would think a massive multi-ton piece of steel and rubber would scare a bird more than just a person on foot, but it is quite the opposite. If you are a photographer of birds and have never tried it, I recommend it highly.
