Avian puffballs

Ottawans should consider going for a stroll or bike ride along the southern side of the Ottawa River in the next few days. It is populated with large numbers of adorable, fuzzy, yellow goslings.

I saw them in four or five clusters, between LeBreton Flats and Andrew Haydon Park. I will need to go back with a better camera.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
