Signs Signs Everywhere

I enjoy finding animal sign. I have a very long “unimproved” driveway through the woods which gives me the opportunity to determine who has been out-and-about during the night and sometimes what they’ve been up to. I frequent a large, remote area north of us where I often have a trail camera set up and have…

A Slide Show

People often tell me that they enjoy seeing my photography and I appreciate the comments. Not to get more flattery but to thank those who tune in to my website, watershedwildlife.com and blog occasionally, I created a video slide show by pulling images out of the archives that were taken in the vicinity of the…

Fox vs. Snack

The plants and the cinnamon ferns in particular appear over a relatively short period and I thought I’d try to catch them developing this year…

American White Pelicans Return to White Lake

Perhaps it’s getting crowded on the other side of Lake Michigan or maybe it is easier migrating here on the eastern side, I don’t know but I’m seeing an increasing number of Pelicans on White Lake. I photographed a group of eleven near Mill Point on May fourth. I certainly don’t see everything that happens on White…

Oh, It’s You Bob

Since early December of 2015 I’ve been involved in an effort to document the presence of flying squirrels here in northern Muskegon County, Michigan. I have a bucket list of critters I’d like to catch on my trail cameras before they die, (the cameras, not the critters) and have recently expanded the area of my efforts…
