Mountain Bluebird

Another early spring event I look forward to is the Mountain Bluebird. Each year at this time during their migration they can usually be seen in Boundary Bay Regional Park in Tsawwassen. Having already been sighted elsewhere in the Lower Mainland recently, I made my way down there this afternoon.

Only a few minutes after arriving I spotted my target bird.

There were two male Mountain Bluebirds actively hunting for insects along the beach.

While numbers will vary each year, these were the only two I saw today. Still, not bad for the first try of this year for these beauties.
