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

A Beaver was busily grooming itself on the shore while two others were tussling in the water nearby. After it finished grooming, the Beaver gathered some leaves for a snack.

Red-winged Blackbirds were seen nearby.

One of the resident Bald Eagles was seen near the Heronry while the marsh resident Bald Eagle landed on a snag in the distance and was being harassed by a Bullock’s Oriole.

Very young Great Blue Heron chicks are still in the nests while fledglings are getting used to being on their own.

A Belted Kingfisher was seen in the distance.

Mallards are usually seen.

Purple Finches were seen as well.

A Cottontail Rabbit was seen on the opposite shore near the Heronry. It did the most amazing jump to cross over a small stream.

Spotted Towhees have fledglings following them.

Wood Ducks are usually seen.

Common Yellowthroats have fledglings following them.
