As the seasons change from summer to fall, so do the birds of Stanley Park.  Across the year, many different and wonderful waterfowl call the Park home.  But do you know how to tell which waterfowl is which, or even if it is a duck or not?  What are the differences between a wood duck and a widgeon, or a merganser and a mallard?  Are grebes, loons, and coots ducks or not?  Join photographer and SPES volunteer Frank Lin to learn about the many waterfowl that find their way to Stanley Park and the Seawall, including year-round residents like the wood duck and winter wanderers like the Barrow’s Goldeneye.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work is the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish people have walked this land and walked with it in a good way, harvesting foods and medicines and made good ceremony here. The abundance that these lands and waters provide us to live, work and play is due to the reciprocal relationships by which Coast Salish people lived and live today.
