October 19th & 20th 2018
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
The slough had a fine fog over it when we first arrived in the mornings.
A Great Blue Heron flew in to land near the Heronry one morning.
Northern Flickers were seen both days.
Northwestern Crows were seen in a snag watching something below.
Pied-billed Grebes were seen in the slough while talking to Christa.
House Finches were seen along the trail.
Mallards were seen in many areas.
A Peregrine Falcon watched the slough from a high perch in a snag.
Song Sparrows are usually seen.
A White-throated Sparrow was seen near the parking lot entrance.
Hooded Mergansers were seen on the lagoons.
Buffleheads have returned from their summer nesting sites to overwinter in our area.
A Virginia Rail was seen in the marsh at the Centre Bird Blind. All we could get was a very fuzzy dark photo before it disappeared.
Wood Ducks were seen in several areas as usual.
