October 23rd to 25th 2018

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

The North Lagoon and East Bird Blind were pretty with colourful trees.

The resident Bald Eagles were adding to their nests, while a juvenile Bald Eagle was seen nearby.

Pied-billed Grebes were seen every day.

Great Blue Herons were seen every day.

Song Sparrows were seen every day.

Spider Webs stood out in the mornings because of the dew on them.

It was extremely foggy on the 24th, we could barely see the Rotary Interpretive Centre from the Main Bridge.

We were dismayed to try for photos of Lincoln’s Sparrows in the fog.

A Swamp Sparrow was also difficult to photograph in the fog.

A Canada Goose was one of many floating on the slough in the fog.

Wood Ducks and Mallards were seen in the fog and the other days as well.
