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

A Beaver was seen enjoying the bark on a stick near the Heronry.

Wood Ducks paddled past.

A Blue-winged Teal was seen nearby.

Common Mergansers were seen close to the Blue-winged Teal.

A male Hooded Merganser in its summer plumage was seen as well.

The Heronry resident Bald Eagle grabbed some dry grass from the farm field to keep the chick comfy in the nest. After delivering the grass, the Bald Eagle perched near the Heronry to survey the territory.

The Great Blue Herons were busy as usual. One juvenile Great Blue Heron got into a scuffle with an adult because it was invading its territory. Other adults found frogs and more to feed the chicks.

A Canada Goose was seen at the far end of the road past the Heronry.

An American Wigeon was seen nearby.

American Robins are a favourite bird. They are a bird most of us learn in childhood.

Nootka Roses are pretty in bloom along the edges of the trail.

European Starlings have nestlings and fledglings begging for food.

Tree Swallows are nesting.

A Savannah Sparrow was seen in the distance.

A Vesper Sparrow hopped along the trail in front of us.

Black-headed Grosbeaks are easily seen at the Rotary Interpretive Centre feeders now.
