A Winter Wildlife Collection

A bit of a different post today. We are aware that some of our followers do not use Facebook, twitter, or other social media. We share many of our nature videos on those sites, so to accommodate those folks, we present a video of our nature sightings since mid-November ( basically, after paddling season ended). The clips were taken while snowshoeing, or traveling to/from trailheads, or on dedicated trips to birding hot posts. I apologize for the shakiness; they are all taken handheld, often in rather challenging weather conditions!

If you want to skip to highlights of the 14-minute compilation, our favorites are at 1:08, 5:33, 9:36, and at 13:10 .

There are over 15 different animals in the clips. Can you identify them all?

Enjoy. Soon we’ll be back wildlife watching from the canoe….only 45 more days

..and on to February!

Just a quick posting, with a short video of our January snowshoeing. It turned out to be a pretty fine snowy month, and even though it finished with bitter cold wind-chill days, were able to snowshoe on 28/31 days in the month. February is beginning with a nice snowstorm, so lots more snowshoeing, along with some skijoring and sledding, awaits!

Ten weeks until Paddling Season!
