Company Comes to Call

It’s been a quiet winter in terms of wildlife. We see signs of hares, but rarely see the hares. We hear great horned owls and often have fox tracks on the driveway. But we’ve seen absolutely nothing of moose–at least, not in the yard. This place is usually rotten with moose. Where are the moose?

My guess is they’re up in the hills. We’ve got little snow, so the gettin’ around in the Bush is still easy; they have no need of cleared roads and packed trails.

Today, however, for the first time in months, a couple came to call. They helped themselves to some frozen twigs; one took a nap behind the house; and then they moseyed up the hill.

    Hi Jen and Mike,
    Love your new website! Congratulations! Your pictures are breathtaking. Such a blue sky I’ve never seen. And a moose in your back yard! Very cool!

  2. Thanks, Judy. That sky was spectacular, wasn’t it? It’s snowing today, but that’s nice in its own way.

    I’m glad you’re here!

  3. How amazing to have mooses (moose … moosi … mice?) come to visit in your own backyard! As we don’t get snow here in Perth I guess there’s little chance the mooses will come and visit us.

  4. Oh, I like “moosi.” I usually say “meese,” but I might have to switch.

    You’ve got marsupials, you lucky-duck-billed-platypus; you don’t need moose.
