September 3rd to 5th 2013

We always enjoy our walks at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve in Chilliwack, B.C., Canada.

The weather has turned and is dark and rainy but we can still find something to photograph on our walks. A Beaver was seen moving sticks around in the water.

A young Black-headed Grosbeak was seen in a tree in the distance.

Black-throated Gray Warblers were seen.

Black-capped Chickadees are usually seen every day.

A few Great Blue Herons were seen. At this time of year, they are dispersed over the area and are not easily found.

A lone Horned Grebe was seen on the 3rd; it called and a Pied-billed Grebe came to see what the visitor was doing in its area.

Quite a few Lincoln’s Sparrows were seen.

A couple of Orange-crowned Warblers were seen.

A Purple Finch was seen enjoying Red Osier Dogwood berries.

Warbling Vireos were passing through.

A few Cedar Waxwings were seen.

The Ospreys are still building their nest for next spring. On the 4th, a juvenile Osprey was seen near the edge of the slough.

We enjoyed visiting with Rod and Grace on the trails and waved to Janet as she was opening the Rotary Interpretive Centre.
