The days have been extremely warm and nice at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve.

Beavers were seen in the water and one was at the edge having a snack.

Black-throated Gray Warblers were hopping about in Red Osier Dogwoods.

A juvenile Pied-billed Grebe was seen fishing.

Great Blue Herons were seen as usual, the adults with their white caps relaxing peacefully while the juveniles with their dark caps look more disgruntled at not being served their meals.

Skipper Butterflies were seen in Blackberry bushes.

A Belted Kingfisher was seen.

A Western Tanager was found in the distance along a pathway.

Several Warbling Vireos were seen hopping about the branches in their constant search for food.

A few Cedar Waxwings were seen.

Wood Ducks were seen as usual.

We waved to Caroline at the Rotary Interpretive Centre, said hi to Deb on the trail and enjoyed a chat with John LeFlock, the talented resident artist and Jordan at the Annex while they were getting ready for the art class. It was nice to meet you Jordan.
