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

Fledgling Northwestern Crows were seen with adults near the gate.

Clematis blooms adorn the fence at the parking lot.

Although they are hard to see, both resident Bald Eagles chicks are very large and ready to fledge soon.

An American Goldfinch brought a bit of colour to the day.

A Downy Woodpecker was seen nearby.

A Beaver swam along the slough.

There are a lot of fledgling Great Blue Herons and a few still at the nests.

Tree Swallows were seen near the Heronry.

House Finches fed fledglings in the distance.

Cedar Waxwings were seen in several areas. Some were near the Osprey nests arguing with Eastern Kingbirds and perching nearby. Others were enjoying the fruits of the Saskatoon bush near the Rotary Interpretive Centre.

A little Hummingbird sipped the nectar of a snowberry flower.

Ninebark is starting to go to seed.

A Pileated Woodpecker checked out an old snag.

Savannah Sparrows were seen near the marsh near the Osprey nest.

Willow Flycatchers are another favourite of ours.
