After a few days of looking for the right place to lay her eggs, Miss turtle here found a spot. Took her most of the day to dig so she can safely lay her eggs.
We did not mark the area off this time. But in about 60 to 90 days, we will watch for the babies to head to the lake. Good luck baby turtles..
This is the morning snapshot from our webcam. The ice is getting darker every day. If you have not made your ice out guess yet or posted your ice out date and want to change it, you have 2 more days. I think it will be sooner than later. I am going with April 21st (my birthday)
So get your poles ready for some spring fishing. Open water is coming.
Another sign of spring is the bird activity. This morning, I heard my favorite, the chickadee, singing. I am sure they make various calls all winter but it is their song that attracts me to listen and reply.
With spring on the horizon, we will start to hear and see many other birds either nesting or migrating through. Be sure to look up once in awhile when exploring.
The ducks, I think they are Common Merganser, have also been tootling around in our “yard” which is a mini pond right now. I hear them quacking at all hours of the night and day. They better be careful as I also saw a pretty big minks the other day by the lakeside cabins.
One thing many visitors to Jackman like to do is see Moose. This little guy decided to stick out his tongue at the photographer.
You never know what you are going to see along our shore
