There were still plenty of warblers at the Lagoon. They were in almost every bush and tree. The Green Heron was still present as were a few Common Yellowthroat, Cedar Waxwing, flycatchers and a large flock of Bushtits.

I never tire of photographing this dainty and colourful warbler.
|Looking for a meal the Yellow-rumped Warbler can sometimes be seen during our winters where it|
feeds on berries until its primary diet insects, return in the spring.
|A Flycatcher, perhaps a Western Wood Pewee. Any takers ?|
|Juvenile Common Yellowthroat (Geothlypis trichas)|
|Belted Kingfisher (Ceryl alcyon)|
|Green Heron (Butorides virescens)|
|Note the dead fish in the water following the spell of hot weather that depleted oxygen in the Lagoon. Two fountains were not working leading to many questions about the City of Langley's commitment to the lagoon.|
Interested parties will meeting at the Lagoon Oct 1 at 2.p.m.to discuss plans for the site. City of Langley representatives, Langley Field Naturalists and interested parties will discuss problems facing the popular birding site. . Hope to see you there.

Lovely shots John but your orange-crowned warbler is actually a common yellowthroat. I think the flycatcher is a willow flycatcher.ReplyDelete
You are the second person to point out the blooper with the common Yellowthroat. The cutline has been changed. ThanksReplyDelete
