February 7th to 13th 2014

We always enjoy our walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, B.C., Canada. We must note it has been very cold and we have had freezing rain on the 10th.

Black-capped Chickadees are a resident bird.

Double-crested Cormorants are easily found during winter here.

Eurasian Collared Doves are an introduced species and have become very common.

The resident Bald Eagles were seen.

Northern Flickers were seen near the Salwein Creek path.

Golden-crowned Sparrows were seen near the Salwein Creek.

Several Great Blue Herons were gathered on the frozen North Lagoon sheltering from the severe winds.

Steller’s Jays were seen in the forest.

Dark-eyed Juncos were seen along the paths.

A Ruby-crowned Kinglet bounced through the trees, seldom stopping for any reason.

A Scaup floated past the Salwein Creek Bridge.

Song Sparrows were seen in many locations.

Spotted Towhees were seen in many areas.

A White-crowned Sparrow was seen near the Rotary Interpretive Centre feeders.

Also visiting the Rotary Interpretive Centre feeders was a white-striped White-throated Sparrow.

We also visited the Rotary Interpretive Centre Gift Shop for nice chats with Karen, Billie, Val, Pearl, Gordon, Kay, Dick, Jean, Ann and Delia and had nice visits with William and Bob on the trails.

We found a field with quite a large flock of Trumpeter Swans, while we were there Bruce managed to get a few photos of a pair of Tundra Swans as well.

Here is a video clip of the flock.
