I was looking for a pair of Rosy finch but they were not to be found. Meanwhile, the morning dew was still clinging to spiders webs as a pair of Yellow-rumped warblers picked off insects from a cedar tree.

|Spiders were plentiful on this cedar tree.|
While photographing the warblers the unmistakable sound of Anna's hummingbirds could be heard nearby. A male perched on a magnolia bud, it was just a question of finding the best background for the shot.

The day ended at Stanley Park's Third Beach where a raft of Barrow's goldeneye and Surf scoters bobbed in the waves and rode out the swells of passing boats. It was so warm people were sunbathing and playing frisbee. Gotta love birding in Vancouver!
