Long Pond bestiary

Animals seen at Pinewoods this year:
  • a flying squirrel
  • a red squirrel with a lot to get done
  • painted turtles:
    • one adult, scooting away along the pond bottom
    • two juveniles the size of scones
    • three babies the size of cookies
  • a garter snake
  • woodpeckers
  • some sort of blurry hopping mouseish thing
  • a great blue heron, seen from about twenty feet away while kayaking
Got me about three hours o' sleep last night, due to being trapped in Pinecones by a torrential downpour. Thus, zzzz. More to come.
