March 23 – Moose

Our neighborhood moose (or one of them) was back yesterday morning, first nibbling on our neighbor’s bushes and trimming them back to where they emerge from the snowbank, and then eating on another neighbor’s pine tree. We have had regular moose tracks through the snow in our yard, but usually the moose has gone by the time it is light out. The news media have reported that the moose population is more ornery than usual, probably due to the fact that the snow is covering most of what they want to eat, so we need to be careful when we go outside so we can avoid an encounter with a moose.

Birds have been as usual, with no noticeable reduction in the Common Redpolls.
