at Deer Lake
On these warm winter days in
February, youíll see many feathered friends as you wander
through Deer Lake Park in Burnaby. Colorful male mallard ducks
and their dull brown female mates glide peacefully atop the
smooth waters. Groups of seagulls and pigeons bask in the sun on
the sandy shores. A lone gray heron stands erectly near the
cattails. Red breasted robins flit quickly from bush to bush.
Canada geese peck hungrily at the grass. High up in a tall bare
tree sits a rare golden eagle eyeing its prey in the lake below.
Next to noisy Canada Way, itís a pleasure to escape to Deer Lake
Park and see the birds on a winterís day.
