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

The Heronry is always an interesting place to visit. While we were watching the Great Blue Herons today, one of the Great Blue Herons showed Melanistic tendancies. Melanism causes the colours of the feathers to be darker than usual. This Great Blue Heron had large darker spots of blue on its back and sides.
