On a local Chilliwack Facebook page, I found out about a beautiful little Park with a huge pond to visit. It is Sardis Park and the pond is Sardis Pond. There are walking trails around the park and around the pond, so I started off with 2 loops of the pond and the next day did 3 loops. I took a fair number of photos, but won’t show all of them here today.
The turtles in the pond are a mixture of Red-eared Sliders (that were imported and common as pets many years ago) and the Western Painted Turtle (native to Canada)
There is a beautiful white Crow along with several regular black crows living there. I couldn’t resist the little red Dragon Fly when he stopped to pose for a photo.
More of the Beautiful Great Blue Heron.
I was told by another walker at the park that there is a Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve not too far from the park. Guess who is going to have to go there one day. 🙂
I was surprised to see this little duckling swim up to the log and jump up beside the turtle. I did not see any other ducklings or any of the adult ducks even looking at the little guy.
I decided to squeeze in 2 more duckling photos and another of the beautiful white Crow before ending this.
More to come in the next few days.

Love the turtles, Mavis. I am Foxy Grandma from Walking4Fun, just checking in to see where you walk IRL.
Good to hear from you Foxy Grandma. This area is all new to me and I am having fun exploring.
