Given the bird

Skiing finished now.  I survived relatively intact.  Tomorrow I’ll post impressions of Whistler but this is just a very brief note to correct a mistake

In the last post on the blog I included photos of a bird which I named as a Canada Jay.  Incorrectly.

A friend correctly identified it as a Clark’s Nutcracker.  They hang around all the mountain restaurants and I took a few more photos at Crystal Hut on Blackcomb Mountain where we went for extremely fine waffles on Thursday.
