Some Time at Burnaby Lake

15 04 2013

I went down for an hour to Burnaby Lake to see what I could see.  I was rewarded with a nice sunny time and a few lovely subjects:

Burnaby Lake Birds

6 01 2011

Some Burnaby Lake Birds.  The ice around all the local lakes and even on Burnaby Lake forced the usually shy birds to come in much closer.  The mergansers have NEVER been so close.  Monday was a good day to shoot.  (It also was probably our last sunny day until late May Sad )

For those of you following along at home, if you know the ID of the two sparrows, please chime in.

1) Unknown Sparrow (Fox?) – These guys will pose for peanuts Wink
