Raincouver has been living up to its nickname with what feels like weeks and weeks of non-stop downpour. I’m on holiday right now and while my intention was to spend my days hidden in a blanket fort surrounded by chocolate wrappers, waking to sunshine and blue skies had me running out the door.
To take advantage of the gorgeous, albeit cool, weather my boyfriend and I bundled up and set off to visit the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary in Delta. The area includes managed wetlands, marshes and dikes, and lots of birds.
What we saw today mostly consisted of loons and adorable little chickadees, but we also spotted various other birds during our walk. The scenery was lovely and we both loved hearing the birdsong.
