As the ice leaves, so do the animals

April 10, 2013

The ice melted around my home first, and now perhaps half of Penetanguishene Bay is ice-free.  When the only open water was near my home, I was treated to a wide variety of birds and mammals who had no other place to be.  I’m ready for warmer weather, but it was pretty cool to see both a muskrat and an otter only ten metres from each other – and even closer to me.  Not shown are the huge number of Mergansers that were too shy to allow me close enough to take pictures.april 9 (3) b April 10 Otter And Muskrat (2) b April 10 Otter And Muskrat (3) b April 10 Otter And Muskrat (6) b April 10 Otter And Muskrat (7) b April 10 Otter And Muskrat (8) b spring is here (1)b
