Three weeks ago Thursday, the day I was in Vancouver on errands and then had lunch at English Bay Beach, I proceeded on to Stanley Park. One of my stops was Beaver Lake located a short walk northwest of the rose garden. There are many trails throughout the park which includes a trail going around the lake. They are suitable for walking or cycling. You never know what you might see. It could be a little Douglas' Squirrel, Tamiasciurus douglasii, such as this one found on a bridge running over a small stream that flows into Beaver Lake. Or it might be the many waterlilies that cover most of the lake. You might even find a Great Blue Heron, Ardea herodias, out fishing amongst the lilies. It's certainly worth a visit!
