August 1st to 3rd 2017
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Everyone enjoys watching the Osprey family at their nest site. Some days, with the smoke and fog it was difficult to see the action. The adults are still adding sticks to the nest. The young females are very active now, exercising their wings and eating a lot of fish.
Wood Ducks were seen every day. We saw a few very young ducklings.
Cedar Waxwings were seen in many areas.
Mallards are seen in large numbers, very often they are seen following along in a straight line.
Through the fog and smoke, we could see a young Cooper’s Hawk in the distance.
Northern Red-shafted Flickers were seen.
Beavers were busy in the dim light.
A few Common Yellowthroat Warblers were seen along the way.
A Bullock’s Oriole landed in a Red Osier Dogwood while we were watching the Osprey family.
