June 1st & 2nd 2017
We always enjoy our walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
There are quite a few female Common Mergansers waiting for the new ducklings to emerge from their nests.
Red-winged Blackbirds voices are often heard as we wander along.
There were two Crows seen together along the trail. One was much larger than the other making us wonder if we were seeing both American and Northwestern Crows together.
Willow Flycatchers were seen in several areas.
At the Heronry, Great Blue Heron chicks are growing quickly. We saw several adults out looking for food for the chicks and a few were feeding.
The Ospreys were taking turns looking after their eggs.
Three River Otters were seen in the distance.
Cottontail Rabbits were seen along the trails.
Song Sparrows were singing from strategic perches.
Cedar Waxwings were seen in large flocks.
Common Yellowthroats were seen along the trails.
We took a walk along Lickman Dike Road where male and female Lazuli Buntings were seen.
An Anna’s Hummingbird stretched on a small twig in the distance.
Savannah Sparrows were seen as well.
A White-crowned Sparrow sang from a well chosen tree.
