We enjoyed our usual walk at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
We were disturbed to find the Heronry resident Bald Eagle’s nest fell down sometime since our walk yesterday morning. We reported this and we are happy to find out there were no casualties of any kind except for the loss of the nest. The people from the city estimated the weight of the nest was in the 182 kg (400 lb) range. It’s weight was too much for the tree branch holding it. The area where the Bald Eagle's nest used to be has a large void. The Heronry resident Bald Eagles were seen nearby.
A Beaver was swimming along when it gave a warning splash at a duck which got too close. It went on to have a bite to eat. It finished its meal and got onto the shore for a serious grooming session before bed.
Great Blue Herons were busy at the Heronry.
The Canada Goose goslings were seen as usual.
Adult American Robins were enjoying wild cherries while juveniles were seen in other areas.
A few Northern Rough-winged Swallows were seen.
Cedar Waxwings were seen nearby.
Wood Ducks with ducklings were seen in a few areas.
Common Yellowthroat Warblers were seen along the way.
American Goldfinches were seen in a few areas.
Red-winged Blackbirds were seen with fledglings.
A few White-crowned Sparrows were seen along the Lickman Road dike.
