Indeed, whenever we spent some time at this beautiful park in West Vancouver, we are rewarded with so many experiences nature has to offer.
So today we saw a blue heron (no picture of it though), a bald eagle, the usual crows, seagulls, ‘our’ little white-crowned sparrow in addition to harbour seals, sea lions, and so many harbour porpoises which was more than amazing.
A pair of Canada geese swam by with their little goslings – maybe the same two we saw a few days ago, but this time showing off their offspring.
And here they are – all the marine mammals we saw:
harbour seals, sea lions, harbour porpoise, and a minke whale.
Yes, indeed, there was a minke whale feeding right in front of us. At first, I thought it was a group of harbour porpoise, but no, this was a much larger animal out there.
What an incredible experience!
We had another lovely afternoon and evening at Whytecliff Park where we are always amazed at how much wildlife there is to see – small and large birds from hummingbirds, sparrows, herons to bald eagles, as well as small and larger marine animals from harbour seals, harbour porpoises to sea lions.
While enjoying some relaxing time at Whytecliff Park, we saw a lot of wildlife around us.
There was one inquisitive crow which walked along the cliff and kept looking at us.
We also spotted a beautiful pair of harlequin ducks swimming by. And, of course, we also saw harbour seals, sea lions, and harbour porpoises.
