June 17th & 18th 2017
We enjoyed our walks as usual at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Juvenile Red-winged Blackbirds begged for food from adults while most males were busy singing on strategic perches.
Fireweed is in full bloom.
A Black-headed Grosbeak was seen near the Heronry.
Our first sightings of fledgling Great Blue Herons was this morning. The Heronry was quite active, with very mature chicks still demanding attention and getting fed by over-worked adults. Nearby, the resident Bald Eagle perched above its nest and chick.
The Ospreys were seen at and near their nest.
American Robins were gathering nesting material.
A few fledgling Song Sparrows were seen along the trails.
Tree Swallows were seen near their nests.
Cedar Waxwings were seen in several areas.
Wood Ducks were seen in large numbers.
There were quite a few Common Yellowthroats some with fledglings following close behind.

We enjoyed talking to Charlie with Jack, Casey with Ula, Diane with Liz, Frank, Gordon, as well as Warner on the trails.
