June 10th & 11th 2019

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

Clematis are adorning the fence with bouquets of pretty flowers.

A female Bullock’s Oriole was seen at the far end of the road past the Heronry. Soon after we noticed her, a male Bullock’s Oriole came into the tree to whisk her away.

Nearby a few female Common Mergansers gathered together at the top of a snag to watch and listen for young ducklings.

Brown-headed Cowbirds were seen in the same area.

One of the resident Bald Eagles came in for a landing near the Heronry.

A Willow Flycatcher called from its favourite perch while little gnats swarmed around his head. At the far end of the road past the Heronry, another Willow Flycatcher defended his territory in song.

Great Blue Heron chicks were being fed and watching the big old Bald Eagle perched nearby.

Two Hooded Mergansers were seen.

A Black-headed Grosbeak was seen along the way.

Tree Swallows were seen in nest holes.

A good-sized flock of Cedar Waxwings flew into the Crab Tree at the far end of the road past the Heronry. The Cedar Waxwings spent time together passing “gifts” to each other and generally resting.

A few Wood Ducks are usually seen.

A few male Common Yellowthroats are usually seen.

At Lickman Dike Road, we came across a Willow Flycatcher enjoying the benefits of a new stream and vegetation.
