October 16th to 18th 2017
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
We were happy to see a female Coyote at the far end of the road past the Heronry. She seemed to be waiting for her mate. She wandered in and out of the marsh and finally laid down for awhile. We left her to wait. While Mallards gathered in the water to watch her. A domestic Swedish Duck was seen with a Mallard in the same area.
Nearby, a Cooper’s Hawk was seen in the distance.
On our way back, one of the resident Bald Eagles was seen in the distance.
The edges of the water at the North Lagoon are full of many colours.
The Swedish Duck, Mallards and Wood Ducks were seen as usual.
