We always have a nice walk at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve.

Beavers swim quietly past in the water. Best time for seeing them is early morning or evening. Best light is in the evening.

The little Willow Flycatcher with her nestlings has been very successful. We checked in to see how she was doing and she was feeding the last fledgling in the nest. There were three nestlings in total. We have seen more Willow Flycatchers this year than we have ever seen here before.

A small flock of Canada Geese were visiting today.

There were two Green Herons across the water from us today. They were seen in several different locations.

A Hooded Merganser floated serenely on silky water nearby.

The Ospreys were busy at their nest.

A few Yellow Warblers were seen on their way south.

A juvenile Song Sparrow balanced on the end of a stick.

A baby River Otter was seen on a log.

A male Common Yellowthroat perched lightly atop a Yarrow flower.

We stopped in at the Rotary Interpretive Gift Shop for a nice chat with Val and enjoyed chatting with Penny, Larry, Selma and Helmut on the trails.
