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

There were a few Green-winged Teal seen today.

It was a day of the Double-crested Cormorants. At the moment, there are at least nine Double-crested Cormorants visiting the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve. The log at the East Bird Blind is the most desirable place to dry their wings. Apparently, this log has room for seven Double-crested Cormorants at one time. We watched in amazement while they traded places on the log. There was a lot of squawking and carrying on while we watched. One of the major problems created is the Double-crested Cormorant on the log has dried its feathers but if one jumps up onto the log, it sprays water over the others nearby.

We enjoyed talking to Helmut, Warner, as well as Graham on the trails. We also enjoyed chatting with Val and Barb in the Rotary Interpretive Centre Gift Shop.
