7 cormorants on a log

7 cormorants on a log

The recent high winds must have broken up a log boom, because for days logs have been floating into Vancouver’s harbour on the tide. I watched 7 cormorants float in on one log, 2 on another. The next day, a tug towed a log boom right into the harbour (in the photo you can just see the boat near the right of the boom). Booms in the harbour somehow look very 1896, because those days are over, and there’s no lumber mill in Vancouver anymore. Maybe the tug was just protecting its logs from the next windstorm. March is really not going out like a lamb.
