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

The resident Bald Eagle was watching over its young.

Fledgling and nestling Great Blue Herons were easily seen.

A few House Finches were seen as usual.

The little Black Phoebe has been visiting the area near the Main Bridge for quite awhile now and has been seen by many out of area birders.

Adult American Robins were gathering nesting materials while many juvenile American Robins were seen nearby.

Tree Swallows and Northern Rough-winged Swallows had fledglings lined up on bare branches for easy feeding.

A Yellow Warbler was seen near the Main Bridge.

Male Common Yellowthroats were seen along the way.

We enjoyed watching the unusual behaviour of a couple of young Mallards diving in the slough.

At the Lickman Dyke Road, we saw Savannah Sparrows.

Hover Flies covered in pollen from Chicory flowers.

Juvenile White-crowned Sparrows waited patiently on fences in hopes of being fed.

Turkey Vultures flew overhead.
