Weekend Expedition 10: Spring is springing in Stanley Park!


Calling Red-winged Blackbird…These odd fellows are related to the Oropendolas.

This weekend, I returned to Stanley Park to check out some of the early spring action. The herons are beginning nest construction and courtship in the large heronry near English Bay, and there are more and more birds bursting into song and aggression at the slightest provocation. Check out the video of the bill snapping/nest building heron, and then browse around the gallery below to see the highlights of this Weekend Expedition.
