Birds, Bugs, and Bees on Byrne Creek Walk

My circumnavigation of the Byrne Creek trail in SE Burnaby this afternoon produced several animal photos.

This pileated woodpecker was using the metal top of this light standard to drum up
a girlfriend and/or warn off territorial encroachers.

More and more millipedes are steadily appearing in the 'hood. An inquisitive ant circled
this one several times before finally giving up and leaving.
