Serpentine Fen - May 27, 2008

It's been quite a number of years since I've gone down King George Blvd. down to Serpentine Fen. Serpentine Fen is a wildlife sanctuary for migratory birds. It's a part of the Great Pacific Flyway - a major north-south route for migratory birds. It's a place for birds such as great blue herons, ducks and other wildfowl to take time, rest and refuel for their journeys. Since most birds travel the same route every year, birders and ornithologists can generally predict what time of year a certain species will reach a certain location.

These photos were of the first trip we made to Serpentine Fen in 2008. We did do one the following year, however the photos are still on the computer that will not boot so I'm going to have to remove that drive and have it installed in a hard-case so that I can transfer the photos onto the laptop drive.

The trip allowed us to photograph great blue herons and white-crowned sparrows. I also saw what appeared to be a juvenile bald eagle however I couldn't get my D50/70-300mm f/4-5.6 G combo up fast enough to get a clear bead on it.
