June 16th & 17th 2019
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Our favourite little Willow Flycatcher was on its snag as usual.
Two Beavers were seen near the Heronry.
Just after that, we saw a male “Coydog” a hybrid between a dog and Coyote standing on a log in front of the Heronry. When we got to the Heronry we could see his mate resting at the far end of the log. After checking us out, the male sat down on the log and the female went back to sleep.

Above the Coyote’s heads, Great Blue Herons fed their chicks and carried on with their usual Heronry activities.
Eastern Kingbirds were seen at the far end of the road past the Heronry.
The Heronry resident Bald Eagles were seen as usual, as well as one of the marsh resident Bald Eagles perched on its favourite snag.
A Bullock’s Oriole was seen near the marsh resident Bald Eagle’s nest.
Adult American Robins and juveniles were seen as usual.
Song Sparrows were seen in many spots.
European Starlings glistened in the sun.
Wood Ducks were seen in many areas.
A little House Sparrow was seen with its family near the entrance gate.
Tree Swallows were extremely busy feeding demanding fledglings.
A male Damselfly was seen on a Mock Orange.
