December 8th to 11th 2017
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Beavers were collecting grass for their lodge.
The resident Bald Eagles were seen sitting together on both days. They were also adding sticks to their nest which is a never-ending work project for them. While immature Bald Eagles were seen in a few areas; one was busily swooping and banking over the ducks on the North Lagoon.
Little Buffleheads were easily seen in the dark morning.
Tiny Anna’s Hummingbirds survive the winter with help from people like the volunteers at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve who put out feeders and keep the feeders filled and thawed.
Pied-billed Grebes are often seen at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve.
Two tiny American Kestrels were seen perched on a branch in the distance.
Golden-crowned Kinglets were seen along the trail.
Spotted Towhees were seen in many areas.
Mallards, Hooded Mergansers and American Wigeon were seen every day.
A Peregrine Falcon flew past in the distance.
Ring-necked Ducks were seen in many areas.
