Well, the time has finally come where we can venture out again as a club.
Our first official outing in over a year will take place at Burnaby Lake Regional Park. The entrance at Piper Spit has ample parking, washrooms, the Nature House and takes you directly to a wooden walkway (the spit) out into the lake. Expect to see many different birds – more wood ducks than I’ve seen any where else, herons, sandhill cranes, mallards, geese, red winged blackbirds etc… This spot is where the extremely rare Mandarin duck has been hanging out for the last year or two and was recently spotted there again.
If you are not interested in birds there are some nice forested trails to explore and it will be a chance to get together in person again.
