Extractions: Thanks to Canadian Border Outfitters for sharing this information on Boundary Waters. Over 52 species of mammals and 150 species of birds inhabit the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness of Minnesota and the Quetico Provincial Park of Ontario, Canada. Sitting at your campsite you may see a tiny shrew weighing a fraction of an ounce, or a huge bull moose weighing in at over 1200 pounds. The black bear travels the canoe trails as well. Bears range in weight from 50-300 pounds, some reaching 600 on occasion! Colors range from glossy black to cinnamon brown. Keep those food packs in the air and a clean camp! The raccoon is a rare sight, more common in the central section of Minnesota. The cat family includes the solitary and nocturnal lynx and bobcat. These cats are rarely seen, because the area sits at the southern limit of the lynx range and the northern extreme of the bobcat's range. Traveling and portaging as silently as possible will afford you with the best possibility of seeing wildlife up close. If you hear a rustling or crashing in the woods, sit quietly and be patient. Moose, deer and other mammals frequently lack good eyesight, but have a great sense of smell. Usually they will smell your presence and if you remain still they will move into the open, or right by you after realizing that your smell is not a"threat" to them.

Extractions: Miscellany (pdf) by Gary Ades General wildlife sightings are posted on the KFBG Wildlife Sightings Board on a fortnightly basis, with records provided by KFBG staff and visitors. Most records tend to be generated by the KFBG Security team on night shifts, the monthly Night Safari activity and regular surveys by the Fauna Conservation Dept. staff. All records will soon be databased to investigate any possible patterns of habitat use by fauna on our hillside. (1) The following sightings records were posted between August and November, 2003 August 5 August, 5.10pm; Scarlet-backed Flowerpecker ( Dicaeum cruentatum ), near tropical plants house - adult female with 3 juveniles begging for food. 23 August, (Night Safari) 7.30 pm; Japanese Pipistrelle Bats observed hunting insects, and picked up at 46KHz on bat detectors, over the Butterfly Garden; 8:30 pm - still a few fireflies along the stream at the Fern Walk. 27 August, p.m.; Many-banded Krait hatchling found outside the Admin.

Extractions: The Nisutlin River delta is a busy place at this time of year. For migrating water birds heading south for the winter, the Nisutlin delta is the most important Yukon site south of Old Crow. It's by far the largest river delta in the Yukon south of the Beaufort Sea coast. About ten kilometres north of the village of Teslin, the delta is a network of channels, mudflats, marshes and islands created by the Nisutlin River just before it drains into Teslin Lake. Each fall, thousands of swans, geese and ducks, along with hundreds of shorebirds, settle on the delta to feed and gain weight before heading further south. The water birds attract predators like hawks, eagles, and falcons. More than 150 species of birds have been sighted in the delta. For generations, the Teslin Tlingit people have used and cared for the wetlands of the Nisutlin River delta, so when they negotiated their land claim, protection for the delta was an important consideration. The result was the creation of the Nisutlin River Delta National Wildlife Area, which became a legal entity in 1995. In the summer of 1997 the federal Minister of the Environment approved a management plan for the National Wildlife Area.

Extractions: Let's Go Fishing program ... Contact Us Wildlife Report from N.H. Fish and Game - October 30, 2003 Welcome, wildlife-watchers! You may be ready to settle in for a winter of bird-watching, but don't put those birdfeeders out just yet, because New Hampshire's bears are still out in force. Hold off until December, says Andy Timmins, Fish and Game's bear project leader. "Given the extraordinary fall we're experiencing, with a lack of natural food crops for bears to eat, the probability of attracting bears to your feeders is extremely high," Timmins says. Heightened bear activity is also expected next spring. If you do get bear visitors at your feeders this winter, take your feeders down for several weeks.

Extractions: HOME Camps Camp Okema Life at Camp ... About This Site There is lots of exciting wild-life to be seen at camp Okema. The best way to see wildlife is to be quiet and watch. Also, look for tracks in the muddy areas of paths. This page will help you learn about some of that wildlife. Please note that chasing, teasing, hand-feeding and stroking wildlife are absolutely prohibited at Camp Okema. Hunting on camp land is also prohibited at all times. Camp is used by skiers, cottagers and work groups out of season - a person could be anywhere any time. Usually associated with the ocean, these black birds have long rounded necks and perch on posts and fish. They migrate through in Spring and Fall, and are to be found at Waskesieu sometimes by the paddle steamer dock.

California's Concerns Native Carnivores Other Mustelidae Tables CALIFORNIA'S NATIVE TERRESTRIAL CARNIVORES Twenty native species of terrestrial carnivores are listed as occurring in California ( species list ). Most of these are relatively small carnivores, typically weighing less than 15 pounds (7 kg) when adult, which is the weight of a large domestic cat. Some of the larger carnivores, like raccoons, bobcats, and badgers, are that small, as well. Table 1 gives a comparison of weights of various carnivores. The following species accounts are separated into two categories, based on whether the species are typically smaller or larger than 15 pounds when adult. For each species, there are links to life history information, including species accounts from the Wildlife Habitat Relationships System series "California's Wildlife." "CalPhoto" is a link to a photograph in the University of California, Berkeley, Digital Library Project .

Mink Polar Bear (N/A) Red Fox River Otter Wolverine Wolf (N/A) Ermine and Least Weasel THE SPECIES: Mustela erminea and Mustela nivalis A small, white face pushes up through the snow, its black eyes gleaming brightly. Next comes the body, long and slender, ending in a black-tipped tail. Built to squeeze into nooks and crannies, this ermine and its cousin, the least weasel, are two of the world's most efficient mousers. And, as anyone who's seen them will attest, these two weasels are also among the boldest and most agile of all Yukon mammals. DISTRIBUTION The ermine and least weasel inhabit northern countries around the world. In North America, ermine range from the Canadian high arctic to south of the Great Lakes and into the mountainous western states. Least weasels occur throughout most of the same range, but are absent from the arctic islands and western states. Both least weasels and ermine range throughout the Yukon, avoiding the depths of mature forests and preferring instead to sniff and snoop in forest edges, meadows, brushy areas, marshes, bogs, and tundra. Based on winter track surveys, Yukon ermine are fairly abundant. However, least weasels are uncommon, though not endangered, throughout most of their North American range.
