We have paddled at least a couple of times a week this month and have seen many of the usual suspects.
We saw loons on many of the lakes and rivers we were on.
Cormorants and great blue herons were also around as well as some song birds.
We have also seen many flowers.
I went to Maine for my 50th college reunion and went to the Bates-Morse Mountain Conservation Area. This area has several ecosystems: spruce forest, salt marsh and beach, among others.
