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

The slough was misty this morning when we arrived.

We were delighted to watch Beavers interacting with each other this morning.

The marsh resident Bald Eagle grabbed a large piece of sod from the farm field to take back to its nest. After flying across part of the field, the Bald Eagle found the sod became too heavy so it landed to rest for awhile. Eventually, it took the sod away. After this morning workout, the Bald Eagle rested on its favourite perch to preen.

Great Blue Herons are busy with chicks and renovating nests at the Heronry.

There are quite a few Cottontail Rabbits on the trails.

Nootka Roses are pretty and fragrant at the edges of many trails.

Tree Swallows were seen in a few areas.

Wood Ducks were seen as usual.

Cedar Waxwings are here for the summer nesting season.

Common Yellowthroats are also here for the summer nesting season.

Song Sparrows were singing their pretty songs.

European Starling chicks were peeking out of nest cavities.
