New Years Day at Reifel Bird Sanctuary

New years day is interesting - not everything is open and some things (Vancouver Aquarium) can be quite crowded.  We have a beautiful day so I decided to drive out and see the bird Sanctuary.

Walk Around Jericho Ponds

I've seen quite a few birds from the pier at Jericho beach, but I don't walk around the ponds much.  Nature Vancouver is doing a walk there next week but it's so close I decided to walk around myself on Sunday morning.  I started at the peer where I spotted a Common Golden Eye picking mussels off the rocks.
