Bird Watching at Lost Lagoon – Stanley Park, Vancouver

[belowtitlead]
The name for Lost Lagoon comes from a poem written by Pauline Johnson, who later explained her inspiration:

“I have always resented that jarring unattractive name [Coal Harbour] for years. When I first plied paddle across the gunwhale of a light canoe and idled about the margin, I named the sheltered little cove Lost Lagoon. This was just to please my own fancy for, as that perfect summer month drifted on, the ever restless tides left the harbor devoid of any water at my favorite conoeing hour and my pet idling place was lost for many days; hence my fancy to call it Lost Lagoon.”

The lake was officially named Lost Lagoon in 1922 by the park board, long after Johnson’s death and, ironically, after the lagoon had been permanently lost after becoming landlocked. – By Wikipedia

Even though the weather was too windy and it was raining lightly, I enjoyed clicking and shooting these beautiful ducks and swans at Lost Lagoon. As you move towards north, you will get to see beautiful view of downtown Vancouver.

I have made video of ducks swimming, crossing the road at Lost Lagoon Nature House. I am sure you will love it. :)
