An error a couple days ago is that I said the beaver lodge was below the highestwhite pine in the middle of the picture. It was the wrong picture. This is the picture with the tall pine.
For a bit of the unusual, the only geese I’ve seen here this year spent the day feeding near the beaver lodge, which they picked as their resting place midday. Also, after not seeing a rose-breasted grosbeak here for months, this young male whose plumage shows he hatched this year spent much of the day.
Exciting News....Our friends at the Northwoods Bear Foundation are hosting an online auction to benefit the North American Bear Center. The auction began today, September 12th, at 12pm CT and ends on September 18th at 3pm CT. Check out all the details here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1377169629133985
Last night I went home early to catch up with family gathered here from four distant places—good fun. Kelly and Colleen shared stories that will have to go in the book. One I hadn’t thought of for the book was of Donna bringing a picnic for us to have on the flat roof of the USFS Kawishiwi Field Lab and us holding the ladder a couple feet out from the roof to keep bears from joining us. We remembered many good adventures and how we never had a problem. Looking forward to writing about them.
Thank you for all you do,
