Wild animal sightings in the past two weeks (Metro Toronto Zoo not included)

  • m00se: Four – three female adults, one calf* (three separate sightings)
  • Bear: One – black bear, lurking in rocks at the side of the road while I was driving by
  • Nighthawk: Two – flying over our heads when we were biking last night
  • Fox: One – running across the road on the drive home from work today
  • Mosquito: Too many to count. Numberous mosquitos squashed.
  • Beaver: One – swimming around near its dam

    * do they call m00se babies calves? I think they do…

    Anyhow… I worked today. Last night we went biking, which was lots of fun. I’m really tired out from working, though. Tonight, however, Blue Rodeo is playing at the high school in town. Hmm… looking back on that statement makes me giggle. Blue Rodeo tonight, which is sweet goodness. I don’t work again until next weekend probably. I think I’m going to do a lot of biking when Adam’s at work. At least it’ll keep me out of the house.

    Eh? Say what?

        The ontario northland bus is pretty much daily from toronto, but I can’t remember how long it takes… at least 7 hours or so, though, I think.

      I’ve only ever seen (with my own widdle eye) ONE fox. Ever. It was a grey fox down here in Georgia. They’re bigger than they look! I mistook this one for a coyote at first, before I noticed the reddish markings on his legs and belly and the WAY too thin muzzle.

      Of course, I have annoyingly acute eyesight as well. It was at a distance, and the rest of the people with me saw (and I quote) “a grey blur.” 🙂
