As the season slowly transitions from fall to winter, 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? What are the differences between a wood duck and a widgeon, or a merganser and a mallard? Are grebes, loons, and coots ducks? 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 help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
