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

It is still a frozen world out on the trails. Part of the lagoon was frozen, while the trees and shrubs are still covered in layers of ice.

Black-capped Chickadees perched on ice-covered branches.

Dark-eyed Juncos were also perched on icy branches.

Spotted Towhees brightened up the ice-laden branches.

Steller’s Jays were seen in the forests where some of the branches are beginning to have less ice coverage.

Common Mergansers paddled along on the lagoon past snow covered shores.

Double-crested Cormorants tried to keep their footing on icy logs.

Bald Eagles were doing their best to find something to eat at the Rotary Trail along the Vedder River.
