Anna Richter, a resident of the Canyon Springs subdivision in Coquitlam, sent the following email along with the photos shown on this page:
"Hello. A couple of months ago. I sent you some photos of my hanging basket with birds eggs. Happily, all four eggs hatched and the birds grew up and have now flown off. My basket was much the worse for wear when they were done. I have attached a shot of the wee birds about a week before they left the nest.
"While out for a walk with the dog today, my oldest son spotted this owl in Walton forest. He was just hanging out at the edge of the forest, keeping a keen eye on what was going on. I have seen bears, coyotes, raccoons and deer, but never an owl up this close.
