Ainda com o destino do mês: Canadá. 🇨🇦.
Hoje o post será do aluno @alicildo World Study Brasil, que escolheu Whistler como seu destino de intercâmbio. Alicildo resolveu estudar na escola @tamwoodlanguage pela manhã por 12 semanas e aproveitou a neve da cidade pra fazer seu esporte favorito: snowboarding 🏂 .
Whistler que já foi sede das olimpíadas, é um destino para quem gosta de esportes radicais! Possui a melhor estrutura da américa do norte para os amantes do Ski e Snowboarding. .
🥢 Getting on the skinny skis is always a big change from the powder boards I’m used to skiing on!

Reminder that there are many places throughout the Lonsdale Avenue corridor with electric vehicle charging stations including this one at @nvrc Centennial Theatre beside highway 1, stop here to recharge your car on the way to #Squamish or #Whistler and walk nearby for great restaurants
Norway's Ole Einar Bjørndalen, the world's greatest biathlete, was expected to earn his tenth Olympic medal, possibly another gold. But along with other Olympic favourites, he was kept off the podium. OIe stated that, "it was not because of conditions, it just wasn't my day..." #OlympicMemories
Finally! An image of a male Gilbert’s Whistler! On my past visits to Gluepot I was unsuccessful in obtaining any images of this species even after multiple sightings. Their behaviour compared to Whistlers I am use to on the East coast, the Golden and Rufous Whistlers is quite different. The east coast Whistlers spend the majority of their time in the canopy and from my experiences are generally not shy. Whereas the Gilbert’s Whistler are shy, inconspicuous and spend most of their time in the understory. Anytime I approached this guy he would obscure himself in branches on the opposite side of the shrub. If I then moved to that side of the shrub the bird would move to the side i had just come from - this happened over and over again, it was so frustrating! Anytime I had the bird in the open (which was rare) I would set up the frame and as I was about to press the shutter button the bird would shoot off - I gave up and started to walk back to my car on multiple occasions but then the bird would almost follow me, almost saying you haven’t given up yet have you? Finally I managed to capture this image... not the greatest but I’m still stoked to have a decent photo of this beautiful bird.
