It was very busy with birds during our walk at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
A male Northern Flicker had two fledglings with him today.
A male Black-headed Grosbeak was gathering seeds from the Hawthorn to take to its nestlings.
A Cooper’s Hawk was seen looking around the marshy area just past the Osprey’s nest.
Young Great Blue Herons were seen along the way.
The female Osprey was obsessed with getting a branch off the snag that holds her nest.
Song Sparrows were seen in a few areas.
The road past the Heronry is full of colour with Fireweed and Tansy blooming along the sides.
Cedar Waxwings are usually seen at this time of year.
A young Wood Duck paddled past.
A few Common Yellowthroat males were seen.
We had a wonderful encounter with four fledgling American Kestrels today. We gave them their own journal.
