Delta Multiple Park Ramble – Eagles, Hawks, Harriers and More

We started our day at the North 40 Park Reserve in Delta, BC, checking out the eagles, and spotting a Cooper’s Hawk, too.

We then hit the Boundary Bay dyke west of 72nd, and were rewarded with a couple of Northern Harriers. Unfortunately they stayed far off, but I did manage a decent shot or two.

The last stop of the day was a park we’d never been to before — the South Arm Marshes in Delta.

Still Creek Corridor Stroll

I walked the Still Creek corridor near Willingdon Ave. in Burnaby, BC, this morning while the car was being serviced. While the creek is basically a fairly stagnant ditch in this area, there’s still lots to be seen!
