One of the first weekends we had some nice weather, and went down to Reifel and Boundary Bay to take some pictures. It was good to get out (it had been a while since I picked up the camera), and since it is winter there are lots of birds around.
As always in winter, the birds were active down at Reifel. There were lots of different kinds of ducks, and the sandhill cranes were seemingly everywhere. While most of the birds I knew and had seen before, there was one hawk that I wasn't familiar with, that took off after only one photo, and I'm still not sure what it was.
After wandering Reifel for a while, we headed over to Boundary Bay to see if there were any snowy owls. I wasn't expecting any, but it's always worth having a look. It was pretty low key afternoon, but a couple of good shots made it worthwhile.
