I went to Manning Park this week and I saw a huge amount of Pine Siskins, every place I pulled over I saw Pine Siskins. One of the birds I was happy to find was Townsend's Warblers I found them at various points around Lightening Lake and other areas. I do not think they have settled down yet as there was a lot of singing going on.

Thanks Chris. Most of the times I have seen them they have been up high, like the Black-throated Gray Warblers. On this morning in a couple different areas they were quite actively chasing each other and singing quite loudly and long. These are only a few of the images I took it was almost too easy, I can't say that too often about warblers.
Great shots Nick. I was up there on Sunday and there were lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers, especially at 20 Minute Lake and Beaver Pond. No Canada Jays or Nutcrackers that I had hoped for. I may have seen one of these Townesend's in the trees at Lightening Lake, but could not make a positive ID. Cheers.

Those were the two places that I saw so many of them and the Jays and Nutcrackers were at the day area at Lightening Lake. This was mid week when there was no one there but me, for the first while anyway, I arrived before 7 a.m.
