March 25th to 27th 2018
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Black-capped Chickadees are usually seen.
Buffleheads were diving on the lagoons.
A Beaver paddled past.
A Double-crested Cormorant was seen in the North Lagoon.
In the distance, a Coyote walked across one of the trails.
A Gadwall flew into the slough near the Heronry and spent some time with a few Mallards.
Canada Geese were seen nearby.
Great Blue Herons were seen at the Heronry on the 25th and then in the marshy areas on the next two days seeking shelter from the weather.
We saw a male American Kestrel.
Pied-billed Grebes didn't mind the wind and rain.
American Wigeon seemed to ignore the weather.
Wood Ducks were also not bothered by the wind and rain.
A Lesser Scaup was seen on the North Lagoon.
Song Sparrows sang even though the weather was wet and windy.
The rain and wind brought a large flock of Tree Swallows and Violet-green Swallows into the marshy areas to find food and shelter.
