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

Female Red-winged Blackbirds were seen near their nesting sites.

Cackling Geese were seen in a very large flock, looking like they were getting ready to go north to their nesting grounds. They had one Greater White-fronted Goose with them.

Northwestern Crows are often seen.

Canada Geese were performing the “dunking of the head” ritual prior to mating.

Green-winged Teals were seen in the slough.

A male America Kestrel was seen on the overhead wires near the parking lot.

American Robins were seen in a few areas.

Ring-necked Ducks were seen.

A Lesser Scaup was seen on the South Lagoon.

Song Sparrows were seen in blackberries.

Northern Rough-winged Swallows and Violet-green Swallows were seen along the way.

Turkey Vultures flew overhead.

Wood Ducks were seen as well.
