With all the Northern ducks coming back in from Saskatchewan and Alberta an outing to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary in Delta BC can be quite fun now if the weather holds!

A Cornucopia of Birds!

16 12 2008

With apologies to those with a slow internet connection……

It was cold, sunny weather this past weekend (Note – cold in Vancouver is denoted by below +2C).  I had some great opportunities to go out and shoot some birds.  Down at Burnaby Lake on Saturday morning and then back at the house for the rest of the weekend…

I’m going to break down the birds into a post per species to make it a bit easier 🙂

Downy Woodpecker
Spotted Towhee
Red Breasted Nuthatch
Oregon Juncos
Pine Siskins
Various Ducks
Green Winged Teals
Various Birds

Enjoy them!  It was fun getting out and shooting!
