Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park seemed to be a bird paradise. I caught these shots there and it took me a while to ID some of the birds. Close ups are shot with 70-200 lens with circular polarizer.

Nice set Mike. That second one is a beauty!! Depth of field is really working on this one.

They all grab me! Great stuff. Never seen a sparrow looking so good either ... didn't know they came in a golden crowned variety.

Thanks for looking and commenting. It's still surprising to me how spring-like the weather was compared to Calgary and apparently the rest of Canada. Cheers.
