August 11th & 12th 2017
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
It was unusual to find three Beavers grooming each other.
A Western Tanager was seen briefly.
Flycatchers are often seen on our walks.
Two Belted Kingfishers were seen, one seemed to be a juvenile following after the adult and spreading its wings frequently to get the other one’s attention. It drew so much attention that an American Robin flew in to see it, making it duck out of the way. A Bullock’s Oriole also landed near it on the same branch.
Two Eastern Kingbirds were seen near the Osprey nest.
One of the Osprey nestlings has learned how to fly short distances, while the other is still practicing on the nest. The adult seemed to think it would be a good idea to get out of the way of the energetic youngster.
A Savannah Sparrow was seen in the distance one morning.
August 11 Foggy/Smoky 58F (14.4C) Afternoon 93.4F (34.1C)

It was nice to see Charlie with Jack, Terry with Bogie, David, Ken D., Kurtis and Rob City of Chilliwack workers, Bob, Francina, as well as Kathy with Tula during our walks. We also enjoyed visiting with Valerie, Camille and Linda in the Rotary Interpretive Centre Gift Shop.
