March 1st & 2nd 2017
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
The East Bird Blind is visible and the Great Blue Herons have departed to the Heronry.
The Great Blue Herons are very busy doing the usual things they do when they first arrive. Most of them have chosen a nest, some are adding sticks while others are sparring over nest rights and others were just standing on logs near water.
A Beaver swam past on its way to its lodge.
A Bewick’s Wren was singing a song and listening for a reply.
Buffleheads were seen in several areas.
A male Common Merganser floated past in the distance.
Double-crested Cormorants were seen on logs as usual at this time of year.
A young Bald Eagle was seen near the Heronry.
Golden-crowned Sparrows and White-crowned Sparrows were seen near the parking lot.
Green-winged Teal were seen near the Heronry.
Mallards were present as usual.
Ring-necked Ducks were seen at the East Bird Blind and in the slough in large numbers.
American Robins were seen on the trail.
A little Gray Squirrel pondered our presence but wasn’t too worried about us.
Spotted Towhees were seen along the trails.
White-crowned Sparrows and Golden-crowned Sparrows were seen near the paking lot.
Wood Ducks were seen near the Heronry.
