Fall Banding!

A couple of photos from an awesome morning yesterday – gorgeous fall weather with lots of birds and good diversity – lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers (both Myrtle and Audubon’s) moving through the park and other highlights included a Marsh Wren and MacGillivray’s Warbler – definitely the time of the year for that 100th species to show up!

VIP Day Saturday Sept 8th!

A few photos from our VIP day last Saturday which was a big hit! I really like the one of Tonya Chyzowski at the bottom left which looks like she’s savaging the little boy! 😂Thanks everyone for making them so welcome and for giving them a morning they will never forget! Erika Nassichuk and family arrive for their VIP morning at the station …

Northern Flicker

I voted for Northern Flicker to be Vancouver’s official bird rather than Anna’s Hummingbird (sorry!). They are truly stunning woodpeckers – this juvenile male (note the pale orangeish malar stripe) was foraging for ants and insects on our lawn today.
