Weekend Expedition 39: Winter begins at Burnaby Lake Park

Breeding season is long over, but the eagles still hang out at their nest on the south shore.

I have been super busy this weekend, up at the lab doing work. The semester is coming to an end and I still have so much to do! This weekend expedition was just a couple hour jaunt to Burnaby Lake before heading up to the lab. I hope you enjoy the shots!

The remains of spawned-out salmon were pretty common out at the mouth of the creek.

A scaup was diving down and scavenging on dead fish, as were the mallards.
