June 8th & 9th 2019
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
We managed to see a Beaver enjoying a snack before bed.
An Osprey came into the area where one of the resident Bald Eagles was perched. The Osprey took the offensive, diving at the Bald Eagle over and over before the Bald Eagle took to the sky in defence. The two had a bit of an aerial set to before the Bald Eagle landed again. After a few more attempts at the Bald Eagle, the Osprey left the area.
Northern Flickers were seen near the entrance gate.
Song Sparrows were seen along the way.
A few Violet-green Swallows were seen in the same area.
Cedar Waxwings were also in the same area.
European Starlings are nesting, one found a lovely feather to put in its nest.
Willow Flycatchers were seen in several areas.
Great Blue Herons were busy with growing chicks in the Heronry.
A female Wood Duck was resting on a log with her ducklings, they were enjoying a peaceful moment together. Soon an unsuspecting Mink wandered along which startled the Wood Duck and her ducklings into the water, in turn startling the Mink back into the grass at the shore.
Yellow Warblers were seen far down the road past the Heronry.
Mock Orange was blooming near the Main Bridge.
Cottontail Rabbits are usually seen.
Juvenile American Robins were seen in many areas.
Male Black-headed Grosbeaks were seen near the fence at the North Lagoon.
