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

Brown Creepers were seen in the distance at the far end of the road past the Heronry.

Nearby, a White-throated Sparrow was also seen.

Near this was a flock of Yellow-rumped Warblers.

Ruby-crowned Kinglets were seen in the same area.

Golden-crowned Kinglets were also there.

Lincoln’s Sparrows were seen along the way.

Golden-crowned Sparrows were seen in a few areas. One was singing.

Green-winged Teal were seen in the slough.

A few Great Blue Herons were seen.

Dozens of Mallards were seen.

Mushrooms were seen growing on stumps.

Song Sparrows were seen in several areas.

We heard Fox Sparrows, Black-capped Chickadees, Spotted Towhees, and Song Sparrows making alarm calls, while a little Pacific Wren frantically hopped back and forth on a branch. Finally, after looking deep into the brush, Bruce found a Northern Pygmy Owl having breakfast. It was not very happy with all the birds bothering it, as it looked around at them, we took a few record photos and left it to finish its meal.

Wood Ducks are plentiful and extremely pretty at this time of year.

We enjoyed seeing Michelle with Lacy, Brenda with Finnegan and Roxy, Karen, Ann and Hazel doing a bird count for the Great Blue Heron Nature Society during our walk as well as stopping in for a nice chat with Billie at Rotary Interpretive Centre Gift Shop.
