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

A Beaver was seen during one of our walks.

A female Bufflehead was seen in the slough.

American Coots were seen in the slough, as well.

The resident Bald Eagles have been regularly seen.

Northern Flickers have also been regularly seen.

Gadwalls are spending time on the South Lagoon.

Two Snow Geese were seen in the slough, just past the Heronry.

Pied-billed Grebes are usually seen.

A Red-necked Grebe was seen as well.

American Wigeons are now visiting for the winter.

A few Canada Geese were seen. Some were with Mallards and Wood Ducks.

Wood Ducks are always seen. This time, we found one which appears to be a gynandromorph. This particular Wood Duck is exhibiting both male and female characteristics. The body plumage is that of a male Wood Duck, while the head has eyes of a female Wood Duck.
