An Outing To Beautiful Pitt Meadows

Went to Catbird Slough on the weekend. I got to see some gorgeous birds including Cedar Waxwings. Waxwings are such elegant birds, so I was thrilled when a few perched close to me.

This photo even got featured on the eBird homepage ( It was my first time to be featured which was cool!. They also tweeted it out on twitter here and on instagram here.

Also we saw a male American Redstart, Gray Catbirds, Bullock's Orioles, Swainson's Thrushes, both Black and Vaux's Swifts and 3 Bears. Nearby on Hale Rd we also found 2 stunning Lazuli Buntings.

It was a thrill also to have a Western Wood-Pewee land in close at eye level. They usually sit so high up, so I definitely took advantage of my good luck!
