We enjoyed a nice walk at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Fledgling Red-winged Blackbirds waited patiently for adults to bring food while males preened, stretched and sang on branches.
Foxgloves were magnificent in full bloom.
Northern Red-shafted Flickers were calling to each other.
Great Blue Herons were seen in many areas including the Heronry, while nearby the young Bald Eagle nestling waited for his parents to return to the nest.
Mallards were seen with ducklings.
Milk Weed was starting to bloom near the Rotary Interpretive Centre.
The Ospreys were busy with their nest.
A male Pileated Woodpecker was seen checking out every inch of a nearby snag.
Tree Swallows were seen in many locations, one was perched on the same stick as a Willow Flycatcher. Hungry nestlings were demanding attention from a nest in a hole in a snag.
Wood Ducks were seen in many areas.
A few Cedar Waxwings were seen.

We enjoyed seeing Charlie with Jack, Denise with Summer, Karen, Janet and Hazel doing a bird count for the Great Blue Heron Nature Society, as well as Rick S. on the trails. We also stopped in at the Rotary Interpretive Centre Gift Shop for a nice visit with Valerie, Camille, Josh and Dick.
