March 27th to 29th 2017
We enjoyed our usual walk at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada. We cannot get out to the Heronry during weekdays at the moment as gravel trucks are busy on the road.
A little male Downy Woodpecker was seen near the trail.
Golden-crowned Sparrows are starting to moult.
A Northwestern Crow watched us from above.
A male Common Merganser floated past.
A male Green-winged Teal bathed in the slough and paddled to a log to dry off later.
A Canada Goose crossed the trail to get to its mate on an islet in the water.
A Red-tailed Hawk flew overhead near the Rotary Interpretive Centre.
Great Blue Herons are still busily gathering nesting material, now that the gravel trucks have left, we can get out to the Heronry again.
Dark-eyed Juncos were seen in small numbers.
Dozens of Mallards are seen every day.
A Pileated Woodpecker was seen in the distance.
Ring-necked Ducks are seen every day at this time of year.
American Robins are being seen more often now.
Song Sparrows were seen in the Salwein Creek forest.
A little female Violet-green Swallow perched on a branch closer to the trail.
Wood Ducks were seen on logs, in trees, in the water and shorelines.
