Frenchman's Bar Trail.

I walked the dogs along the Frenchman's Bar Trail in Vancouver this morning to get a real taste of fall.. 



Geese and cranes were present in overwhelming numbers, and in underwhelming numbers, a single Peregrine Falcon:


That's my third falcon for the week.  Hmm. Other birds along the trail included Turkey Vultures, a male Northern Harrier, Red-tailed Hawk, goldfinches, Savannah and Golden-crowned Sparrows, flickers, blackbirds, Greater White-fronted Geese, and gulls.  Good times!
