February 11th to 15th 2013

We like to take a walk every day at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, B.C., Canada.

We usually see a lot of Black-capped Chickadees at this time of year.

Double-crested Cormorants use the lagoons for fishing in the winter.

The Great Blue Herons are starting to gather together before heading to the nests. We counted at least 52 in the surrounding trees one morning.

We’ve seen a few Hooded Mergansers on the lagoons. These are females.

There have been quite a few Steller’s Jays in the forests. The Steller’s Jay is B.C.’s provincial bird.

Dark-eyed Juncos were seen along the paths.

An American Kestrel was seen hunting from a farmer’s fence off in the distance.

A Lincoln’s Sparrow was seen along the way one morning.

An American Robin was seen along the path one dark morning.

Song Sparrows are starting to chase each other and sing.

A Gray Squirrel was seen on a path one morning.

Spotted Towhees were seen in large numbers.

Mallards were seen in good numbers.

Wood Ducks were seen in the distance one morning.

A Snow Goose was seen with a flock of Canada and Cackling Geese in a farm field one morning.

River Otters put on a show of diving for fish on a couple of days.

We stopped in at the Rotary Interpretive Centre for a nice visit with Eileen one morning. We also enjoyed seeing Jon, Mary, William and Donald on the trails this week.

Happy Valentine's Day
