** The FISHER [chat pêcheur] is a very elusive mammal, and one that many of us have never seen, or at best have had very fleeting observations. It is much more common in northern New Brunswick than in southern regions. Theresa McCready shows a video she got on a trail camera, of a Fisher interested in an apple cache on their Young’s Cove property. Fruit is not normally on the Fisher menu, but many mammals will include fruit as part of their diet. Theresa shares two videos of their Fisher. Take a look at the action at the Dropbox site below. The McCready’s have a 130 acre property of predominantly Acadian forest with lots of brooks and ponds to make for ideal wildlife habitat. They have several trail cameras set up to watch wildlife activity on the property. They monitor carefully to protect the wildlife present.
** Jamie Burris’s INDIGO BUNTING [Passerin indigo] must have reviewed yesterday’s edition of the BlogSpot. After an absence of 9 days, Jamie’s Indigo Bunting returned to his Riverview yard, on Monday, January 13th. It appears to be favouring one leg. Jamie’s resident SHARP-SHINNED HAWK [Épervier brun] appears to have MOURNING DOVES [Tourterelle triste] on its mind, as another has shown up with apparent attack injuries.
