Trumpeter Swans a Natural Highlight of Comox Valley Winters

The Comox Valley has so much versatility to offer with regards to wildlife and surrounding nature. Many people come to the Comox Valley to visit and end up living here because of the beauty of the Comox Glacier, surrounding mountains, Goose Spit, the historical estuary, Mount Washington, the rivers, forest trails, and many recreational activities. Known as the Land of Plenty, the Comox Valley offers a smorgasbord of activities for all ages to enjoy.

A unique success story, the Trumpeter Swan population has rebounded from their near extinction in the 1930s. The population has now grown to an estimated 26,000 birds in North America. Approximately 6,000 birds make a winter stop on Vancouver Island with a majority of them coming to the sanctuary of the Comox Valley.

They start arriving in November and stay until February and can be seen gathering on agricultural lands, fields and grassy areas near the water, where they like to forage at low tide. They spend the winter in these areas before heading north to Alaska in March for the breeding season.

These majestic birds, the largest in North America, can weigh up to 12 kg and measure 150 cm from beak to tail. They have a wingspan of up to 2.5 metres. They are the largest species of waterfowl on the planet. When you hear the “honking” of the trumpeter swans, your natural inclination will be to look towards the sky to see these elegant birds in flight.

Truly, an amazing experience for both visitors and residents.

Enjoy the Benefits of Your New Built Green Platinum Patio Home at The Gales in Ladysmith

The developers and builders of The Gales, a new Vancouver Island real estate development in Ladysmith are building high-quality homes, designed with eco-friendly options to make for more comfortable homes and save homeowners money.
 
New homes at The Gales are built to the BuiltGreen Platinum level. This is the highest level of BuiltGreen certification, offering homeowners a number of money-saving benefits, as well as environmentally friendly construction processes.
 
According to the Built Green Canada website, owners of Built Green homes enjoy healthier, more durable homes with lower environmental impacts. Built Green Platinum homes offer lower monthly operating costs thanks to things like energy efficient appliances, furnaces, windows and insulation. Water efficiency is achieved through plumbing and landscaping choices. Air inside the homes is cleaner with fewer allergens, and more comfortable with fewer drafts and more consistent temperatures.
 
The Gales is now a well-established community in the Town of Ladysmith on Vancouver Island. Award-winning GNB Builders continues its tradition of building modern, luxurious patio homes, two of which are currently listed for sale.
 
These 1,820 sq ft patio homes are built as a side-by-side duplex and are listed at $609,900 - Suite #19 and $619,900 -Suite #18. An additional two new rancher-style homes are set to begin construction soon. These new 1,820 sq ft homes are expected to start at $614,900.
