May 22nd & 23rd 2019
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Beavers were enjoying some time at the edges of the slough. One of the Beavers was surprised by a duck and splashed before continuing on it way to eat at the edge of the slough. A Canada Goose started vigorously treading water when the Beaver got too close to the Canada Goose goslings. A female Mallard came over to see one of the goslings and got rebuffed.
The Great Blue Heron chicks are rapidly growing. The adults are busy keeping them fed and safe.
