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

One morning, during our walk, we enjoyed seeing a Beaver grooming itself. Wood Ducks were paddling nearby. The Wood Ducks were also seen in their usual locations. Some were checking out a hole in a snag.

Cackling Geese were seen almost every day.

Black-capped Chickadees are usually seen.

The resident Bald Eagles were working on their nest.

Golden-crowned Sparrows were seen.

Pied-billed Grebes were seen in a few areas.

Green-winged Teals have become a regular sighting.

One morning, a Hooded Merganser paddled past.

Anna’s Hummingbirds were at the Rotary Interpretive Centre feeders.

Dark-eyed Juncos were seen.

Long-billed Dowitchers were still foraging on the shoreline of the slough.

A Northern Pintail floated past while we were wandering along the slough.

Ring-necked Ducks have returned to over-winter here.

A Red-tailed Hawk watched from a perch in a higher tree.

Turkey Vultures landed in the farm field.

American Wigeons were enjoying the slough.

We took a short walk at Sardis Park with our family where Red-eared Slider Turtles were sunning on logs.
