We saw a few busy creatures during our walk at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, B.C. today.

A couple of Beavers were diving for roots and treading water while enjoying eating the roots.

One enterprising young Beaver had gathered a large bouquet of Water Lily leaves to take home to its lodge. We watched it travel for a long distance before it dived into the water near the bank where its home is located.

We saw several other Beavers heading for home and heard splashing in the water ahead of us so we went to investigate. When we got to the splashing, we found a young Beaver swimming in circles practicing its warning splashes. It did this several times before crawling onto a log behind a branch to rest where we just couldn’t get its photo.

Willow Flycatchers were actively catching insects.

Great Blue Herons were seen as usual.

A juvenile American Robin was seen.

A female Belted Kingfisher was seen in a couple of different locations, always going back to the perch where we first saw her.

On our way back to the car, a Coyote was seen running toward us.

We stopped to have a nice chat with Jon and Mary before leaving.
