Bald Eagle Flying With Bird Remains
I figure he is carrying part of a bird because of the feathers.
Species: Haliaeetus leucocephalus (Bald Eagle)

Purple Finch Female
I thought I had seen Purple Finches before, but they always turned out to be house finches. This time I'm convinced.
Species: Haemorhous purpureus (Purple Finch)

Purple Finch Male
I believe this is a purple finch, not a house finch. I believe that because the red goes most places (I have a bum picture), the prominent light band on the head and the crest.

Cedar Waxwing Building Nest
Unfortunately, this tree was right next to a foot path and this nest was abandoned a week later.
Species: Bombycilla cedrorum (Cedar Waxwing)

Two Tree Swallows On Bird Box
There is a more green and a more blue version sitting on this nest box. The colour doesn't indicate gender.
Species: Tachycineta bicolor (Tree Swallow)

Swallow Inspecting Birdhouse
These birds didn't really seem to mind the birders close by - the bird was inspecting a nest box and spent quite a bit of time coming half into the hole.
Species: Tachycineta bicolor (Tree Swallow)

Two Tree Swallows In Nestbox
I didn't realize this was a double entrance box. I wonder if one bird is standing on the other.

Tree Swallow Chick Begging For Food
The same chick was monopolizing the hole. I really wonder how the other babies get fed.

Two Osprey And A Bald Eagle
We counted between four and six (probably six) Osprey in the pilings on the Vancouver side of the Fraser. From this picture, it's hard to believe you are looking at the city of Vancouver.

Common Yellowthroat
This bird is a long way away - just spotting it was hard. If it was brown instead of bright yellow, I wouldn't have had a chance of seeing it.
Species: Geothlypis trichas (Common Yellowthroat)

Immature Female Tree Swallow
I believe this is an Immature Female Tree Swallow because of the dark back and dark beak. Immature males have a yellow beak apparently.
Species: Tachycineta bicolor (Tree Swallow)

Red Wing Blackbird In Red Elderberry
I have no shortage of Red Wing Blackbird photos, but it looked so pretty in the flowering Red Elderberry.
Species: Agelaius phoeniceus (Red-winged Blackbird), Sambucus racemosa (Red Elderberry)

Yellow Headed Blackbird
There were at least two in the marsh - you could hear one call and then the other. Not that closely related to the Red Winged Black bird - different family.
Species: Xanthocephalus xanthocephalus (Yellow-headed blackbird)

Red Wing Blackbird Comparison
Red Wing Blackbirds were quite common in the Marsh - you could easily see two or three at any time. I thought it would be handy to have a photo of a Red Winged Blackbird in similar light, but it turns out they aren't closely related to Yellow Headed Blackbirds.
Species: Agelaius phoeniceus (Red-winged Blackbird)

Cotton Wood And Brown Eyed Susan At Sunset
This is a two image stack - the background was shot separate from the flowers because I couldn't get them both in focus without motion blur on the flowers.
Species: Gaillardia aristata (common gaillardia, brown eyed susan)

Not a hint of the Red wingtips.

Female Rufous On Blackberry
These really are small birds. Thankfully, they seem very patient with people.
Species: Selasphorus rufus (rufous hummingbird)
