Hawk, Pileated Woodpecker in Byrne Creek Ravine Park

We heard several Pileated Woodpeckers on our Byrne Creek Ravine Park walk in SE Burnaby today. As we were following one to get a photo, Yumi nearly walked into this hawk on a branch only five or six feet off the ground.

It was so weird, we didn’t even notice it until we were just a couple of meters away. It sat there for 10 – 20 seconds eyeing us before it dove into the ravine.

A magical moment!

Here’s the Pileated Woodpecker we were seeking after hearing its call. There were at least two in the area.
