The far bog has been completely filled with what I call duck weed. The frogs seem to like it but I have seen fewer ducks this year at this spot.
We have had this robin hanging around the yard for the last four days.
In times where there are not enough birds around, I look for other interesting wild life.
Another look at the Madagascal stream during our summer visit. The stream runs more than ten miles from the Madagascal Pond near Lincoln south to the Passadumkeag river. Two hundred years ago, farmers fields ran along both sides. The waterway itself was used to float logs from the forest lands to the north to the mills in Old Town and Bangor.
Heading north on the Madagascal stream toward its source, we encountered several beaver dams. This one was so substantial, we decided it was time to turn around and head back to camp. It is a good example of the work “nature’s engineers” are capable of.
