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

A Beaver swam past in the dim light as we wandered along.

A little Muskrat spent awhile snacking on the vegetation at the edge of the water.

A male and female American Kestrel were seen for a moment.

Great Blue Herons were busy with nesting. There was one juvenile Great Blue Heron from last year’s nesting standing in the grass nearby.

A Canada Goose was nesting in the marshy area at the far end of the road past the Heronry.

Red-winged Blackbirds were seen in many areas.

A few Common Mergansers were seen.

A few Tree Swallows and Violet-green Swallows were seen along the way.

American Robins were seen in many spots.

Wood Ducks gathered in large groups on tree branches while we watched.

A Common Yellowthroat Warbler was seen in the nearby grassy brush.
