2013-02-11 Burnaby Lake Trip

DSC02778

The SFU Wildlife Conservation Club went on a trip to the Wildlife Rescue Association and around Burnaby lake today. Plenty of birds were seen, as well as some interesting bracket fungi I am not familiar with. A mild foggy morning/afternoon, light mist rain that picked up a bit by the time we reached piper spit. The male red-winged blackbirds were in full force today singing for mates and flashing their red patches.
