March 8th to 10th 2019
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
River Otters were seen near the Main Bridge.
Great Blue Herons were gathering at the East Bird Blind as well as fishing in a few other areas. One was seen at the Heronry.
Dark-eyed Juncos were seen along the way.
A troop of Raccoons were seen wandering along the opposite shore of the North Lagoon. They often stopped to feel in the mud at the shoreline to see if they could find a freshwater clam. A young one was late following the troop because it was walking gingerly on the hardened snow.
Male Red-winged Blackbirds were doing their best displays for the females and opponents.
American Robins were seen as well.
The slough was frozen solid and covered in snow.
The Trumpeter Swans were starting to leave when we arrived but there were a large number which were not ready to depart as yet.

Willows were starting to bloom.
White-crowned Sparrows were seen along the way.
