Salmonier Nature Park 3

Salmonier Nature Park 3

We saw two great-horned owls, but they were behind the trees so I didn't get a photo of them during this visit.  We didn't see a lynx, pine marten or groundhog, but we did see one peregrine falcon that was eating a mouse.  It was on the ground, so I was shooting down through a wire enclosure.  You can see the blood on its beak.  A bull moose was relaxing in the tall grass and I stopped for a while but didn't see another moose.

There haven't been otters in the park for a few years, so I was glad to see the enclosure was open.  The kids didn't see it, but I told them to watch the ripples.  The otter swam right over, stopped and checked us out, then disappeared under the shrubs along the shoreline.  

Feel free to share with family and friends.
