    American Robin

    American Robins are so common here. It's odd to read people getting excited about one! Enjoy though...they are neat birds to watch when they are looking for worms in the grass. Kate :hi:

    Two ID helps

    Hi Michael W, I live closeby in Vancouver, BC. I was looking at your pictures and reading the replies about picture 2. Picture 2 is of a Rufous-sided Towhee, also known as a Spotted Towhee. Here are my observations. You mentioned that the bird was a bit smaller than a robin, which fits...

    Birding along the waterfront in West Vancouver, BC

    Hi Charlie M, Once you cross the Lions Gate Bridge to the North Shore, Klootchman Park is about a fifteen to twenty minute drive west along Marine Drive. To find it, watch for the sign for Lighthouse Park on the left. Then take the first road, Howe Sound Lane, on the left after Lighthouse...

    Birding along the waterfront in West Vancouver, BC

    Hi Richard, Thanks for your reply! Klootchman Park is not very well known, as you discovered. It is a great park. It would probably be better known in the rock climbing community. On my first visit, two families were hiking in to go rock climbing on the cliffs. There is a trail for...

    Birding along the waterfront in West Vancouver, BC

    I decided to go to some areas I haven't yet visited for birding near my home in West Vancouver, BC today. On Grebe Islets just off the cliffs of Klootchman Park, I saw pelagic cormorants, surf scoters, and black oystercatchers. There were also at least six harbour seals in the water. One was...

    Trip over the border

    James & Diane, The stain in the picture appears to be oil to me. I have volunteered to clean oiled birds in the past. The stain resembles oil on some birds in the pictures I saw during my oil spill clean up training. It would be a real shame if no one helped get the diver to a rehab. Is...
