|Looking north on Caesar Pond|
|Note: If the kayak looks familiar, it is. We sold it to Shannon when my knees refused to cooperate anymore.|
|We sure do wish the pond would support a pair of loons, but we usually only have one.|
I've been hearing one on the pond over the last week and we were so fortunate to see it twice during our short outing. It was too far away for me to get a good photo of, so this is the best I could do.

I snapped photos as fast as I could, trying to get different views of the birds for I.D. purposes.
The birds were moving so fast that I couldn't get a good view of them to I.D. them on the pond, although I did know that they were warblers. The lighting was so harsh that my naked eye view of them was that of black and white shapes whizzing past.
Soon, we decided to skeedaddle over to the western side of the pond. As we entered the open water again, we spied a Canada Goose tucked into the boggy area. This is where some of them tend to nest each year.
Overhead an osprey was berating us for being interlopers into its territory. It then flew back to the cove and perched on a tall pine tree.
We finally arrived at the beaver lodge. And, what a monstrous lodge it is! The beavers must be working feverishly on it as it has increased in size since winter.
