We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Red-winged Blackbirds are common at the moment.
Buffleheads were riding rough waves.
Spotted Towhees were seen on the first.
Black-capped Chickadees were seen along the way.
The resident Bald Eagle was watching over its territory.
Northern Flickers were seen near the entrance gate.
Fox Sparrows were seen as well.
A young Great Blue Heron was seen at the edge of a shoreline.
Golden-crowned Sparrows were seen near the parking lot.
Anna’s Hummingbirds were seen near the Rotary Interpretive Centre feeders.
A pair of Canada Geese were seen establishing their usual territory at the base of the Rotary Interpretive Centre.
Dark-eyed Juncos were seen along the way.
The slough was frozen over and covered with snow.
Song Sparrows were seen along the way.
European Starlings were seen as well.
A large flock of Trumpeter Swans uses the south lagoon to rest overnight and leave with the first light in the morning. Sometimes they leave before the gate is open and we see them flying from the lower parking lot.
