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 (ebird.org). 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!
