The Cash Converter

“Sometimes magic arrives on fairy dust. Other times it is summoned on the lips of believers. Once in a while it is a gift from some gray-haired old sage – usually in the form of a sword or an amulet or some equally impractical gift for a 12-year-old. But for Jason Lee, resident of 100 Main St., somewhere-not-too-important, the magic arrived in a plain brown box, off the back of a rather plain brown truck, delivered by a person in a rather plain brown uniform. The cash converter arrived by accident.

What would you do if you could convert anything… or anyone… into cold hard cash?”

FAQ

What type of herons are these?

The birds in the photos are great blue herons (Ardea herodias).

How did you find so many?!

Great blue herons nest together in rookeries and I was fortunate to come across this rookery during breeding season. (It was largely a lucky accident that happened while delivering my daughter to the ferry going to Victoria, BC.) Reportedly it is the largest great blue heron rookery in the Canada; right here in the suburbs of Vancouver!

Where is the rookery?
