October 10th & 11th 2017

We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.

We watched a Beaver enjoying eating Water Lily leaves until it sensed the presence of Coyotes on the wind.

A Cooper’s Hawk was seen on both days.

The Heronry resident Bald Eagles were adding to their nest.

A Great Blue Heron was seen while we were watching the Coyotes. It never moved from its log and although the Coyotes were quite close, they never bothered with it.

Several Green-winged Teal were seen.

Golden-crowned Sparrows and White-crowned Sparrows were seen in several areas.

A White-throated Sparrow put in an appearance.

Lincoln’s Sparrows were seen in a few locations.

Mallards were seen in very large numbers.

A domestic Swedish Duck was seen sleeping in the far marsh.

A Varied Thrush was seen nearby.

A Northern Flicker was seen eating Red Osier Dogwood berries.

Wood Ducks were seen in large numbers.

We also enjoyed chatting with Valerie, Linda, Bob and Mike at the Rotary Interpretive Centre Gift Shop.
