March 30th & 31st 2017
We enjoyed our walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Common Mergansers were seen along the way.
A few young Bald Eagles were seen as well as one of the resident Bald Eagles. One of the adult Bald Eagles grabbed some dry grass from the farm field for its nest.
A flock of Cackling Geese erupted from the farm field in response to the Bald Eagle’s approach in the field.
Great Blue Herons are starting to sit on their eggs while others are still adding sticks to their nests. One young Great Blue Heron was seen in the marsh.
Female Rufous Hummingbirds have returned from their wintering grounds.
Oregon Grape shrubs are starting to flower.
Cottontail Rabbits are seen more often now.
A male Downy Woodpecker was seen.
A Northern Flicker was seen briefly.
American Robins are gathering nesting materials.
European Starlings were seen near the entrance.
A Red-eared Slider Turtle was seen in the far marsh. It is starting to shed its shell.
Wood Ducks were seen as usual.
