We enjoyed our usual walk at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
The slough was frozen and snow-covered.
The Great Blue Herons usually leave their nests during a late snowfall but they have decided to endure the snow this year, most likely due to the late return to the Heronry.
The resident Bald Eagle was surveying the area.
Red-winged Blackbirds perched on snow-covered Tansy stems.
Common Mergansers spent time together.

Double-crested Cormorants were seen as usual.
A Downy Woodpecker and Northern Flicker were seen along the way.
The East Bird Blind area was a winter wonderland.
A male Pileated Woodpecker was seen along the trail.
Hooded Mergansers and Mallards were seen.
American Robins were a bright spot in the snowy day.
Song Sparrows were seen as well.
Spotted Towhees were also seen in good numbers.
