Birding in BC

The first new bird I saw at Stanley Park in Vancouver quickly became the one we would see everywhere. The Spotted Towhee stood out among the foliage with its bright orange breast, and its mischievous red eyes reminded me of a certain troublemaker back home.

These American Wigeons were also regulars at a few of the wet spots we visited. I love the colours in their plumage; velvety brown, black and white pin-striped wing feathers, and a dark teal stripe across their eyes. Very dashing.
