Another Day in Paradise

Kim and I love to bird together and our most favorite spot is the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary situated on Westham Island in Ladner, B.C. 

Although things have been pretty quiet with most birds having migrated north for the summer, we still manage to find things of interest to observe and photograph. Here are some of the highlights of our visit yesterday, July 30, 2010. 

Yummy blackberries

A quiet trail

Wood Duck (female)

Hungry ducklings

Black capped Chickadees, one of our favorites
