Snowy Owl

Snowy Owl 1b.jpgA juvenile snowy owl spotted in Hugh Cameron's hayfield in Scotsville on Saturday November 5th. Our bird experts Dave & Dave say snowy owls are an uncommon sight in Cape Breton. The juveniles will sometimes show up here when their primary food source - lemmings - is scarce farther north. Unfortunately, many of the snowy owls that find their way to Cape Breton are so emaciated and weak that they will not survive the winter.

DSC08077.jpgIn February 2011, we interviewed 22-year-old Darcy Harte of Louisbourg, who was in the process of building an old-fashioned-style dory. 
(Find the interview under  'podcast archives'  or  LISTEN NOW)

DSC08123.jpgWell, the job's complete!   Darcy gave the dory to his dad, Ian, who dubbed it "Foggy" 
(a perfect name for Louisbourg).  Here's boatbuilder Darcy and skipper Ian at the launch!

Glace Bay Flag in Afghanistan

Members of the Canadian Forces currently deployed as part of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan take a few moments to demonstrate their hometown pride.  The three descendants from Glace Bay are a testament that wherever you go in this world, you are bound to run into a Cape Bretoner.  This photo was taken during a resupply mission to one of the Forward Operating Bases.  The exceedingly rare flag of the old town of Glace Bay was tracked down with the help of CBC listener Betty Crocker from Mira, after Warrant Officer Jessome issued a plea via the Information Morning airwaves.
