07/28/16 Bald Eagles on MDI

Posted: January 5, 2017 in Uncategorized

I discovered a favorite hangout for a pair of Bald Eagles on Mount Desert Island in Maine. During low tide they watch to see if any fish get caught in the pools below after the water recedes. I’ve seen one or both several times. One day a juvenile also showed up. My guess, a previous chick who returned for a visit because there was no aggressive behavior from the adults. The last two were taken during a kayak off Hadley Point. There is a nest on one of the small islands and this juvenile was sitting low on a tree branch.





This juvenile joined the pair one day.

07/24/16 Jordan Pond Beaver

Posted: January 2, 2017 in Uncategorized

Beavers are elusive and will usually dive when they see you. Sometimes when I cross paths with one in my kayak they will slap their tails on the water to let you know they are not happy. But on this day at Jordan Pond in Acadia Park, Mr Beaver decided to play for the camera. He actually swam over to the rocks where I was sitting and decided to eat his branches just a few feet away. Needless to say, I was so excited and took hundreds of photos. After this day, I spotted him many times off in the distance, but was not able to get close again.
