Chilliwack Field Naturalists Trip to Wilband Creek Park

February 25, 2017 


The highlight of this trip was the American bittern that flushed from some cattails as we were nearing the end of our walk around the ponds on a rather blustery day.  Paulina managed an identification shot. Tippers warmed up  over Soup, steak and kidney pie and ploughman's lunch at the Clayburn Tea Room after the walk.
