Queen Elizabeth Park - December 2 2012

Posted by birder on Friday, December 7, 2012
On December 2nd I went to Queen Elizabeth Park in search of birds. I managed to see and photograph some before it started to bucket rain. Highlights of the visit included a Hermit Thrush perching right in front of me for a few seconds and a flock of 75-200 Red Crossbills. Other birds around that I saw included many American Wigeon, a Bufflehead, a Hooded Merganser, a Great Blue Heron, some Common Ravens that I heard, Red-breasted Nuthatches, Brown Creeper, both Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets, Pacific Wrens, some Anna's Hummingbirds, and some Varied Thrushes. Here are two photos from Queen Elizabeth on December 2nd, the first of one of the Hermit Thrushes and the second of a male Red Crossbill.
