Weekend Expedition 39: Winter begins at Burnaby Lake Park


Breeding season is long over, but the eagles still hang out at their nest on the south shore.

I have been super busy this weekend, up at the lab doing work. The semester is coming to an end and I still have so much to do! This weekend expedition was just a couple hour jaunt to Burnaby Lake before heading up to the lab. I hope you enjoy the shots!

We are down to the winter bird fauna now, and Song Sparrows are hanging tough.

This female Wood Duck adds a splash of colour to the wintry scene.


The remains of spawned-out salmon were pretty common out at the mouth of the creek.


Goose bath!


A scaup was diving down and scavenging on dead fish, as were the mallards.


Another Song Sparrow, who was feeding on seeds near the lake.
