Peter O’Neil Brook – May 7, 2017

Peter O’Neil Brook – May 7, 2017

Peter O’Neil Brook I took a walk to Peter O’Neil Brook today. The water is rushing but we didn’t get the four to five inches of rain predicted. The brook isn’t full. Two inches of rain wasn’t a problem. The sun is in and out today, a nice surprise. Any time the sun is out between now and May 18, according to the current forecast, will be a surprise. Life on the homestead is still quiet because of the weatherso…

Bison – Yearlings, Sparring & Hey, Don’t Get Too Close

Bison – Yearlings, Sparring & Hey, Don’t Get Too Close

Bison Steve and I went out last night for our second Woodcock Singing Ground Survey of the  year. We ran the Danforth survey and when in Danforth, I want to see the red stag and bison. Seeing the bison is a rare thing, it’s happened only twice. We’ve been out past the farm that raises these animals dozens of times and until last night, the bison were near the road only once. “The smaller red stag are over here,” I…

Relocating Bird Feeders – Bird Protection Program

Relocating Bird Feeders – Bird Protection Program

Relocating Bird Feeders I’m relocating bird feeders today because of a merlin. This merlin. It’s taking advantage of the bird feeders a couple of times a week. Yesterday’s hunt was a disaster. This is the best way to put an end to the merlin’s opportunistic hunting and help the small birds. Predators have to eat but enough is enough. The merlin bombed through the 15 foot space between the house and my truck, where the bird feeders are located, and…

Moose Browse – Late Winter in Maine’s Woods

Moose Browse – Late Winter in Maine’s Woods

Moose Browse It’s still very much winter here in northeastern Maine. Snow is measured in feet in parts of our woodlot. Branches I don’t notice when the ground is bare have to be ducked under now. The bobcat is still hunting snowshoe hare in sight of the house and now, there’s a fisher passing through. I find their tracks in the snow. And speaking of tracks in the snow, last weekend I found tracks that made us stop the truck…

Ice Fishing – Extensive Ice Fishing Guide

Ice Fishing – Extensive Ice Fishing Guide

Ice Fishing This ice fishing guide has been pinned from my old blog a lot lately so I thought I’d move it over here. We’re already planning ice fishing weekends, which lakes and ponds we can drive to on the snowmobiles from the house, and what fish we want to catch this winter. I haven’t caught salmon and trout so they’re close to the top of my list. Cusk is number one because it’s my favorite for fish chowder and…
