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

A Great Blue Heron watched the salmon spawning in the creek.

Large flocks Dark-eyed Juncos are seen at this time of year.

We always enjoy finding a Lincoln’s Sparrow when we are out for a walk.

The nearby mountains are topped with snow.

A Peregrine Falcon flew to a far perch.
