PITT RIVER DYKE – DEBOVILLE SLOUGH BIRDING FIELD TRIP REPORT – January 19, 2019

PITT RIVER DYKE – DEBOVILLE SLOUGH BIRDING FIELD TRIP REPORT – January 19, 2019

This 3-hour, 5.7 km birding field trip with leader Larry Cowan, started in Port Coquitlam on the Pitt River dyke, just north of the Lougheed Highway, at the east end of Nicola Place. We then walked north on the dyke, then west along DeBoville Slough (in Coquitlam). 27 birders braved some rain showers along the way and were rewarded with 30 species.

One highlight was a female Evening Grosbeak and Janice White luckily got photos of it, which are included in the eBird report. Another highlight was a Peregrine Falcon perched high up on a black cottonwood. The other raptors seen were 6 Bald Eagles, a Red-tailed Hawk and a Coopers Hawk. As usual, the benefit of many sets of eyes was obvious, with some spotting the birds and others identifying them.
