Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lake

Wildlife Part II

Birds of the Arrow Lake

For this second part I selected a few birds that live at the water or near the water. Among the water fowl the Canada goose is most common bird around here. Spending more time in the dry bush is the grouse. The mallard duck prefers secluded ditches as long as they are filled with water and offer hiding places. The merganser loves the lake and would not be anywhere else, while the kingfisher likes to look at the lake from above. Enjoy.

  1. Great photos, Peter! To my knowledge, I saw my first grouse a week ago. I was riding my bike in the mountains and I saw it running along the trail. I found it to have a very unmistakable posture and stride as it ran along. It seemed strange to me that I’d never seen one before!
