Our walk at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve was full activity this morning.

There were bees in the wild Impatiens at the edge of the paths.

Black-headed Grosbeaks were seen along the way.

Willow Flycatchers were seen at almost every second shrub.

A Green Heron was seen across the water and flew closer to us. We took a few photos and left it to fish.

Great Blue Herons are still at the Herony. The young are getting ready to fledge and many were already out looking for food by themselves. They usually return to the nests for a few days after fledging but it will not be long before they spread out across the farm fields and water ways to fend for themselves until the end of next February when the adults will return to nest.

Hooded Mergansers are starting to return.

There were three Belted Kingfishers chasing after each other today.

The Ospreys were adding to their nest for next year. They chased a young Great Blue Heron away.

Juvenile and adult Wood Ducks were seen along the way.

We enjoyed chats with Gordon in the Rotary Interpretive Centre Gift Shop and Bene on the trail.
