On one of our days off this week we drove up to Long Lake. It’s about 45 miles from here. On the way there we started seeing lots of signs about moose in the area. As I was commenting that we sure weren’t seeing many moose, we drove right by this one!
Long Lake is up close to Madawaska, which is the northernmost town in New England. The lake is really beautiful.
Cliff Swallow nests
We also drove out to Square Lake where we came across this pair of Ruffed Grouse.
The male jumped into the roadside as we approaced in the truck. Apparently to protect some babies. We saw at least one chick going into the grass but didn't get a picture.
