June 19th to 21st 2017
We took our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Two Beavers were tussling together in the water.
Red-winged Blackbirds were seen as usual.
A Black-capped Chickadee checked out some Mock Orange flowers for insects.
Northwestern Crows have fledglings following after them.
A female Hairy Woodpecker was seen near the entrance gate.
A few Great Blue Heron chicks have fledged. The remaining Great Blue Heron chicks are almost ready to fledge. The resident Bald Eagle was on its nest. The last two photos in this sequence show half of a Great Blue Heron egg on the side of the nest.

A female Mallard with one duckling, paddled past the Main Bridge.
A lone Common Merganser duckling was seen near the Heronry, while another loner was seen at the bottom of the stairs near the Rotary Interpretive Centre. A few females were seen a little later so we think the ducklings will find the females.
The Ospreys are still on their nest site.
Wood Ducks with ducklings were seen in several areas.
Willow Flycatchers were heard and seen in several locations.
Lazuli Buntings were seen on the Lickman Dike Road.
Viper’s Bugloss is in full bloom along the Rotary Trail.
