Robert Bateman - Marbled Murrelet
Paddling my canoe around Salt Spring Island, I often see marbled murrelets bobbing and diving for small fish. Only recently have researchers discovered that these birds actually nest on the pads of moss growing on the high branches of ancient trees in British Columbia's old-growth forests, evidence of the interdependence of species and of the importance of virgin forests in ensuring biodiversity. These tiny relatives of the auks and puffins - almost always seen in pairs - look so unlikely riding the sea swells; I always imagine they will simply get swallowed up in the vastness of the ocean. - RB
