Another sign fall is here…

GWFG-Jericho_Park-2014_10_04

Aside from the fact that we are bracing for at least five days of rain (starting this afternoon), the arrival of certain bird species signals the start of fall in this part of the world. In my previous post, you saw a juvenile Cedar Waxwing feasting on the now very ripe berries. The birds pictures above (Greater White-Fronted Geese) are another such species, which come down here from their Arctic breeding grounds. I was lucky to see about a dozen individuals last weekend on one of the lawns of Vancouver’s Jericho Park.
