Came across this one while looking for Goldeneyes at Cormierville wharf. Taken Dec 23, 2016.

Yes Joanne, I miss them too. Their insect munching act is, without a doubt, the Cirque du Soleil show of the natural world. To see their batty silhouettes dipping & diving in front of a magical twilight sky is(was) one of those can't miss summertime happenings. Almost did a video shoot of it a few years back, but then the weather changed and last (as well as this) year, I have spotted nary a one.

Derek, I'm glad you mentioned Bats and White Nose Syndrome. Folks have mentioned day flying Bats during inappropriate seasons; this was caused by the effect of WNS. Here in Quispamsis, during a time of year that is appropriate for Bat sightings at dusk and later, sadly I have seen none. I miss them.

Do other areas of NB have Bats to report?

There's a documentary on Bats & White Nose Syndrome on PBS right now ....

Chipmunk...and now there are 2. The other 4 are still hiding.

Signs of spring....Our first CHIPMUNK was on the woodpile today. Perhaps the strawberries and oranges I put out was tempting him.

On a recent night bird-focused trip to Charlotte County, we were all staggered by the new experience of hearing Grey Tree Frogs.  They were in multiple sites near to the St. Croix River.  A suprisingly loud and utterly unforgettable cacophany. Jim Wilson patiently searched for one and was rewarded with the frog in this image.

This group would include fish too, herptiles, which is what reptiles and amphibians as a group are sometimes called, and mammals such as deer, moose, and, yes, even dead voles. But no birds, please, never.
