February 1st to 5th 2018
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Double-crested Cormorants were seen in several areas.
Great Blue Herons were seen in a few locations.
The resident Bald Eagles were seen as well as several young.
Wood Ducks, American Wigeon and Mallards were seen in many places.
Golden-crowned Sparrows were seen near the parking lot.
Northern Flickers were seen in the Salwein Creek forest.
Willows are starting to bloom.
Red-winged Blackbirds can be heard along the trails.
A River Otter was seen while we were walking along the trail.
We saw two American Kestrels as we wandered a trail.
We came across a Red-tailed Hawk tagged by the team at Vancouver Airport. They capture,tag and relocate the birds to avoid air collisions with aircraft. If you see one, report the tag, date, time and place seen.
On the second, after our walk, we took a drive to Sumas Prairie which has a lot of Bald Eagles at the moment.
Trumpeter Swans are seen in many farm fields at this time of year.
On our way home on the fifth, we stopped at Brown Creek Wetlands where we saw a few Great Blue Herons.
