104th Street at Boundary Bay - October 10 2011

Posted by birder on Friday, November 4, 2011
Yesterday I went to 104th Street at Boundary Bay. I walked along the path and took photos of the songbirds in the bushes.

Lincoln's Sparrow


Orange-crowned Warbler


Golden-crowned Sparrow


I then turned around and walked back the other way. This time I focused more on the beach, looking for shorebirds. The first shorebirds I came across were 3 Greater Yellowlegs.


After taking photos of the yellowlegs, I notcied a female Northern Harrier over the corn fields on the other side of the path. The Harrier flew across the path and head out over the beach. Later on a saw a male, but he was flying alot faster and was alot harder to get a photo of.



I went back to looking for shorebirds, and after a few minutes of walking, I came across some Black-bellied Plovers. They were far away and I could not get good photos, but here is one of the photos I took of them.



Later on while I was about to leave, a Peregrine Falcon landed in a tree. I took a few photos and got closer, but before I could get more photos, a crow chased the falcon away.
