Came upon an owl pellet on our Byrne Creek walk in south Burnaby today. Opened it up to find small bones inside. We haven’t heard owls for some time, but they’re still around.
Also saw a bald eagle being chased by crows, and a hawk being chased by crows.
Hanging out with Sora in the sun for awhile after lunch. Who wants to go back to work on a lovely Friday afternoon?
Lots to see on Byrne Creek ravine walk in SE Burnaby, BC.
It was fun watching this Bufflehead diving repeatedly near the mouth of Byrne Creek in SE Burnaby, BC, today.
Lovely walk along Fraser Foreshore Park in south Burnaby today:
Black Capped Chickadee
White Crowned Sparrow
Lovely day at Boundary Bay in Delta, BC.
Got a couple of decent Northern Harrier shots.
I like to stay on the dike. There were groups of photographers out in the marsh, apparently after a Short-Eared Owl. I’ve gotten great owl shots without leaving the dike, eh?
The Eagles – Their Greatest Hits : – )
A superb afternoon at the Delta North 40 Park Preserve.
Mmm. Drumstick for lunch!
Someone’s got food and the chase is on. . .
There were over a dozen herons snoozing in the reeds at Iona Beach Regional Park near YVR today. By the time I completed a loop of the park and got back to the marsh they had livened up.
Took advantage of a rare sunny day to head out to Iona Beach Regional Park. Was elated to see flocks of Snow Geese!
