Wildlife Sightings

Saw a moose last night around 8 come out of the woods to the shoreline from our cottage in Goose cove it was spectacular for me being it was my first moose sighting. You don't see that in Florida ha ha ha.

Fox at Scott's Landing, around Oct. 26th of last year. I'm adding sighting now because I just found this listing site - and it was not a typical animal sighting for me here on DI
I was downwind and he got pretty close before sensing my presence. Looked healthy!

Scott's Landing produced several species the morning of July 30. Among them were Common Tern (2), Willow Flycatcher (1), American Goldfinch (4), Common Yellowthroat (5), Gray Catbird (2), Song Sparrow (3) and Barn Swallow (2). Nice birds for a birder from the California desert. Great site.
