February 26th to 28th 2013

We have had a lot of rain lately but we still managed to get out for our daily walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, B.C., Canada.

Double-crested Cormorants are easily found and photographed at this time of year.

Downy Woodpeckers are a resident bird.

The resident Bald Eagles and a few visitors were seen as usual at this time of year.

Pied-billed Grebes are usually seen on one of the lagoons.

A young Hawk spent time drying itself along the path of the new Tower Trail.

Hooded Mergansers were seen in the slough along the dike road to the Heronry.

A male Common Merganser was found fishing in the slough below the Heronry.

Dark-eyed Juncos are always seen on our daily walks.

Mallards and American Wigeons are always easy to find.

A large flock of Common Redpolls were seen one very dark, rainy morning.

American Robins were seen in good numbers every day.

Song Sparrows were seen every day.

Spotted Towhees were also seen every day.

Wood Ducks were seen every day.

We kept running into the flock of Golden-crowned Sparrows every day. They were becoming quite used to us.

We stopped in at the Rotary Interpretive Centre for nice visits with Barb and Val, said hi to Bev filling the bird feeders and waved to Janet. We also had nice chats with Frank and Dean on the trails.
