A walk around Reifel Sanctuary on Sunday

17 11 2015

I went out on Sunday to see if I could find a few willing posers as the weatherman had predicted sun – a rarity in Southwestern BC winters. OT was cloudy and SUPER windy to start, but the sun finally came out around 10-11am. Turns out the birds decided to show up too :)

1) Golden-Crowned sparrow in winter plumage.
