After a long absence, I decided to participate in the November bird count at Stanley Park, which is lead by an organization that is near and dear to my heart, namely the Stanley Park Ecology Society (full disclosure: I am a member of their board of directors). I should point out that it was led this month for the first time by an up and coming ecologist, naturalist and birder, Else Mikkelsen. Her first count was a great success!
As a result, I will be posting more frequently over the next few days in order to show you some of the photos I took on Sunday more quickly than my normal schedule would allow. Today, I would like to show you a small sample of the pictures I took — this time, only the common English names of each bird will appear in the caption. I will repost these photos — along with a few more for each species — over the next week or two, with all of the usual information.
