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

We have come to expect the little Willow Flycatcher on his snag when we walk past.

A Beaver was seen on the far shore past the Heronry.

Male Red-winged Blackbirds were singing along the way.

Common Mergansers were waiting in the slough for ducklings to jump from holes in snags and find their respective moms.

Wood Ducks with ducklings were seen in a few places as well as juvenile Wood Ducks and a Hooded Merganser.

A Coyote was sleeping on the end of a log.

The resident Bald Eagles were seen as usual.

American Goldfinches were enjoying Willow shrub seeds.

The Great Blue Herons were busy at the Heronry and at shorelines looking for food. An adult Great Blue Heron landed and scattered Mallards and Wood Ducks but they soon recovered.

Eastern Kingbirds and Cedar Waxwings were at the far end of the road past the Heronry.

Quite a few Cottontail Rabbits were seen.

Tree Swallows were looking after their nests.

We took a walk along the Lickman dike road.

Little Willow Flycatchers are very happy with the new stream and vegetation.

A male and female Lazuli Bunting were seen along the way.
