A Day at the Museum

My friend Peggi and I went to the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa yesterday. We had been invited to the launch of the Ontario Breeding Bird Atlas, a huge undertaking where breeding birds were recorded from 2001-2005. Peggi and I monitored the 10 km square in which we live (our names are in the front of the book as volunteers).
Before the launch we spent a few hours in the museum which is undergoing a major renovation. There is a dinosaur floor (wow!), a mammal floor and an entire floor on birds. Peggi took this shot of me pretending I was a seal. I was happy to get out of that hole before darkness fell, when the polar bears became 'live' (like in the movie "Night at the Museum"). Ha!

So now global warming has driven all the polar bears indoors! Wow... that's cool.

Love this shot! I burst out laughing when I saw your head popping up out of the faux ice.
