Vancouver Birding Trip

From the 3 Oct to the 7 Oct I visited Vancouver for some fall bird photography.

I was accompanied by fellow bird photographers Darryl and Michael.

My destination was George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary close to Ladner in the Delta region of the lower mainland of British Columbia. I also went to Boundary Bay and a couple of smaller parks in the same area.

A total of 48 species were seen. I did not get great photos of some of the birds. The Gallery to the right are some of the best.

A treat was the hummingbirds and the Sandhill Cranes. Northern Pintails were easy to approach as were most of the ducks. Greater Yellowlegs and Long billed Dowitchers were the dominant shorebirds.

Trumpeter Swans were starting to migrate and settle in for the winter. A flock of Snow Geese flew over, but did not stop.

Great Blue Herons were common as were Spotted Towhees.

On the second day we did manage to get a photograph of a Pacific Loon as it swam in a salt water canal.
