Majestic bald eagle at North Marysburgh

Everybody’s thrilled to spot the majestic Bald Eagle which disappeared from Prince Edward County in the 1950s and since has made a return with with up to a few dozen present every winter as they venture south in search of better feeding areas. The photo here taken by Bert Burtch of North Marysburgh. PEC naturalist […]

December Moments

December Moments

I have the dubious distinction of annually celebrating my birthday on one of the shortest days of the year. This might account for why I have taken on the habits of redpolls and tree sparrows of the sub arctic tundra who routinely begin feeding long before the light of day. Similarly, my breakfast is over […]

Learning to Embrace November

Learning to Embrace November

In the last decade or so, I have learned to accept November and enjoy it for what it is. I have been scurrying around – as my father always used to say, “like a fart in a mitten”, spending as much time as I can outdoors. My snowblower is mounted on the tractor, the leaves […]

Hiking For Pleasure and Profit

Hiking For Pleasure and Profit

It seems as long as I can remember I have been leading hikes….somewhere. The photo on the right is one that was taken when I first started leading hikes professionally, in 1984, and I had been leading informal hikes for 20 years before that! I have been dubbed by a colleague as the “pied piper […]

Ringed Bandits Who Steal

Ringed Bandits Who Steal

I can’t help but feel sorry for folks like the ones I wrote about in a recent Picton Gazette column, who are so pristine and Gawdawful perfect in their lifestyle that they consider all manner of wildlife to be the enemy. They should instead be living on the top floor of a condominium, high above it […]

Kaleidoscope of Monarch Butterflies

Kaleidoscope of Monarch Butterflies

More than a rabble or a swarm, a kaleidoscope of Monarch Butterflies rests at the farm of Bert Lewis, in Northport. Monarchs are especially noted for their lengthy annual southward migration starting in August and going until the first frost. The southern Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area (southern tip of The County) provides a […]

Alberta Ranch Preserved recalls halcyon days

Alberta Ranch Preserved recalls halcyon days

Almost prancing with anticipation the big grey-dappled Percherons responded quickly moving the big wagon onto the road when our driver Russ Fitz snapped his reins.  The wheels travelled a short distance and came to a halt on the hill overlooking the 35 buildings and structures that commemorate the incredible days of the big ranches in […]

Gettin' Down and Dirty

Gettin’ Down and Dirty

Here’s a road you should try sometime. It runs from Carrying Place, along the north side of the Murray Canal. If your vehicle holds together and you don’t disappear from sight in a quagmire en route, you will eventually emerge onto County Road 64, at the next bridge. Appropriately enough, it is called Canal Road. […]

Sss'nice to meet you at 'conssservation' camp

Sss’nice to meet you at ‘conssservation’ camp

By Bill Samuel Of all the creatures on Earth there is none more misunderstood then the snake. The day-campers at Macaulay Mountain Conservation Area had the chance to test that theory last week when special guest Jenny Pearce brought her Sciensational Sssnakes presentation for a visit. With her friends Splash (the Northern Water Snake), Angus […]

Foolishness on the Water

Foolishness on the Water

We have to wonder how many more boaters’ lives we have to lose before the Canadian Coast Guard finally recognizes the need to upgrade its current regulations on wearing life jackets?  As we read of yet another boating incident where a boater drowned who was not wearing his life jacket, all we can do is […]
