Walking on thin ice is an occupational hazard when you live a wild life in and around Great Meadows. Here are some masters caught in the act last evening and late this afternoon.
|Some geese resting in rapidly freezing waters, while others opted to walk along the icy rim.|
|My blue heron friend surprised us both as the ice gave way underfoot|
|The coyote catches sight of me watching him, from nearly a half mile across the marsh.|
|Beavers avoid walking on thin ice by poking or plunging straight through instead. Along the inflow channel from the river, there are a lot of punctures through the ice, along with tail trails and scent mounds.|
