This afternoon I headed out to Brunswick Point to see what may be around. Not far from the beginning of the trail,
… was a pair of Bald Eagles. While watching them I also spotted a Northern Shrike, but it did not stick around for photos.
Further along was this Spotted Towhee,
… and Golden-crowned Sparrow. I also got a brief glimpse of what looked like a Hermit Thrush. On the way back a Western Meadowlark flew across the trail landing in the farm field, but was too far off for a photo.
Back at the beginning of the trail with the sun just starting to go down I paused to shoot this lone Willow tree in the farm field.
With Snow Bunting being seen at Iona recently, I decided to try the Tsawwassen Ferry causeway where they can also seen. While there were no buntings around, there were several Black Oystercatcher present.
On closer examination I also noted some Black Turnstone.
Being awhile since photographing any I started with the turnstones.
Following them along the shoreline this bird did pause for a little preening,
… and a nice wing stretch when it resumed its way along the beach. Then some Black Oystercatcher further down the beach started flying in my direction.
I managed this flight shot of the last one in the group.
I continued with the oystercatchers briefly,
… finishing with this one with after it found a tasty morsel.
Then it was back to the Black Turnstone,
… finishing the afternoon with this one taking time out for a bath.
