I think I’ve seen a thrush at our feeder in south Burnaby, BC, just once in years. Today one showed up, but was very shy. I got a lousy shot with my cell phone, ran downstairs to grab a DSLR, and it was gone when I got back.
I kept checking the feeder several times per hour, and success! At one point four were hanging about. Perhaps the snow is making them a bit bolder. . .
We stayed out of Byrne Creek ravine in south Burnaby today. The wind was strong, and branches were coming down. Instead we walked along the Skytrain to 22nd St. Station and back. The winds were creating interesting clouds.
I walked the Fraser Foreshore Park riverside trail this afternoon, starting from the parking lot at Byrne Road and going all the way east to the meadow and back, and then west to Sussex Creek and back.
I never use bait for wildlife photos, but folks leave seeds along this popular trail, making for nice bird shooting opportunities.
Yumi and I have been fortunate to have the week off and be able to enjoy walks in the woods in different lower mainland locations nearly every day. Today the sun broke through at Buntzen Lake near Anmore, BC.
