July 8th & 9th 2019
We enjoyed our usual walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada.
Northern Flickers with juveniles were seen near the gate.
There is always a Willow Flycatcher near the gate to the Heronry.
Beavers are one of the few creatures which do not startle Wood Ducks. There were several Wood Ducks seen both days.
