We always find something to photograph during our walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve.

Red-winged Blackbirds were feeding fledglings.

A flock of Bushtits passed through.

The resident Bald Eagle’s fledgling was active near the Heronry while its parents watched quietly nearby.

A Northern Red-shafted Flicker was seen.

A Green Heron was seen near the edge of the water.

Great Blue Heron chicks and adults were easy to find.

A House Wren was seen near the corner of Sumas Prairie.

A Rufous Hummingbird was seen resting in a shady area away from the heat.

A Mallard was seen with a young duckling.

The Ospreys were arguing over a fish and gathering sticks for their nest.

A Peregrine Falcon was seen.

Fledgling Northern Rough-winged and Barn Swallows were being fed by doting parents.

Three Turkey Vultures were seen in the distance.

Cedar Waxwings were seen in several areas.

Common Yellowthroats were seen and heard in many locations.

A Western Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly was found getting nectar from a Buddleia.

We stopped in at the Rotary Interpretive Centre for nice visits with Val, Barb, Ritsu and Heidi and enjoyed chatting with Jon, Mary, Damion, Janet, Jean and Jaimie on the trails.

We also took a drive to Manning Park where we saw a Cicada resting on a blade of grass next to the trail and Field Crescent Butterflies on Shasta Daisies and Pine Trees next to another trail near Lightning Lake.
