July 2nd & 3rd 2017
We enjoyed our walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
We saw a couple of Beavers, one was dragging a load of Water Lily leaves home to its lodge.
A Brown-headed Cowbird was seen along the way.
The slough near the Heronry was covered in a misty fog when we first arrived.
European Starlings are often seen on our walks.
The resident Bald Eagle’s young chick was on a branch near their nest, exercising its wings.
Quite a few fledgling Great Blue Herons were seen, as well as some adults. There are still a few nests occupied with young chicks.
An American Mink was seen in the slough and on the edge of the water. A few Mallards had to watch it carefully.
A few Barn Swallow fledglings were waiting for the adults to feed them.
A little Tree Swallow fledgling was also seen.
Cedar Waxwings were seen in many areas.
A male Common Yellowthroat was seen nearby.
White-crowned Sparrows were seen on the Lickman Dike Road.
