Lots of bird action at Piper Spit at Burnaby Lake today.
For some reason a Canada Goose got angry at the heron and chased it over a hundred meters. Lots of male birds of various species were getting into spats with spring in the air, so perhaps the goose saw a misplaced rival?
A couple of male Wood Ducks wraslin’ as a female looks on
I win, I win!
Northern Pintails were feeling their oats, too
Lots of Red-Winged Blackbirds making a ruckus
Looks like a beaver, but this is the best shot I got from far, far, away. I got the sense that it had a broad tail. OTOH is does look muskratish, too. . . Looked through my photos again, and none really displayed the tail clearly.
