Super Birding Day at Iona Beach near YVR

I spent about four hours rambling Iona Beach Regional Park near YVR today, part of the superb Metro Vancouver Regional Parks system.

First, welcome to the ‘hood. . . Not! Red-Winged Blackbird greeting committee. . .

Perhaps not the best spot to attempt a landing, damselfly!

Look Ma! No head!

And lots of waxwings. . .
