Took me a bit to find a good short vid.

We have mostly leopard frogs, wood frogs and peepers around the lake.

I saw a bat this evening. This is exciting because I used to see hundreds but white-nose syndrome killed the nearby hibernarium, and they've become very scarce.

It's a terrible fungal disease, an extinction level threat.

Quote:
As of 2012 white-nose syndrome was estimated to have caused at least 5.7 million to 6.7 million bat deaths in North America.[1] In 2008 bats declined in some caves by more than 90%,[12][13] Alan Hicks with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation described the impact in 2008 as "unprecedented" and "the gravest threat to bats...ever seen."[14] In 2016, it was reported that bat populations in the caves and mines of Georgia had been decimated in a similar fashion, after the fungus was first detected in there in 2013.[15]
As of 2017, fifteen bat species, including three endangered species and one threatened species have been affected by WNS or exposed to the causative fungus, Pseudogymnoascus destructans, with impacts varying widely.[16] As of 2012 four species have suffered substantial declines and extinction of at least one species was predicted.[9] Declines included species already listed as endangered in the US, such as the Indiana bat, whose hibernacula, in many states, have been affected.[17] The once-common little brown bat has suffered a major population collapse in the northeastern US.[18] In 2012 the northern long-eared myotis (Myotis septentrionalis) was reported to be extirpated from all sites where the disease has been present for >4 years.[9] In 2009, the Virginia big-eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii virginianus), the official state bat of Virginia,[19] and the gray bat had yet to suffer measurable declines.

I think I've talked about it here before too. It was discovered here in 2011, and by 2014 the local hibernarium was dead.

Before then, if I sat outside at dusk the air would be full of bats. Out on the lake in a canoe, dozens would divebomb us, probably to catch the insects we attracted.

Congratulations B&L and gib that is a big trout.

Maybe not many people fish there these days?

Our lake has recovered well from years of being overfished - now a nice trout can be had most mornings if wanted.

When I was little, we used to catch trout out of the Rocky Mountain rivers and eat it fresh over campfire, couldn't stand the flavor . now I love it, but don't fish as often as I'd like

I grew up eating fish. Mullet mostly. On the weekends and evenings my dad would take us out on the river to fish with gill nets in a flat bottomed boat. When we got older my brother and I went by ourselves. Pulling in 400 yards of gill net full of fish three or four times a night is great for developing your upper body.

I won't eat store bought fish : )

When our food or water supply is tainted, the classy folks start eating very selectively.

The adult folks work at fixing the problem.

So who the fuck is putting their taint on all the food!?!?

Took a shower. If it was there, it is drowned and squished now.

Every august this happens: the picturesque drooping fir branches over the side lawn become the perfect shadowed dense canopy from which every adventurous young spiderling wishes to hang her practice orbs. Lots of needles to add extra anchor lines when you make a mistake, and insects blunder in blindly.

ETA: Also humans.

I had to deal with spiny backed orbweavers all spring. They spin from the giant agave across to the overgrown boxwood on the path from the front door to the truck. I used my cane to gently retie their webs out of my way. When I remembered.

Apparently I didn't always remember. For about three weeks I had a web from the outside side mirror of the truck to the door, and a spider that would gamely hang on or run to the mirror when I went to the store. I figured he rode there in the first place by being stuck on me somewhere from me walking through his web. A Truck with cobwebs. It was fitting somehow.

They disappeared after it got hot.

I had to spend this morning in the city, and had two hours of extra time with nothing to do. Found a trail system I didn't know existed around a small lake + marsh. Walked around it for an hour and a half. There was an osprey nest right by the path in one place, the birds so used to people that the parent just sat up in the nest interacting with its child and flapping its wings occasionally while I stood mere metres (vertically) away watching.

Portland Lake trail? I think? I used the entrance off baker drive above the mcdonalds on Portland(?). Sorry, I get so turned around in Dartmouth sometimes.

If you want to go see the osprey nest, walk down that gravel trail, turn left on a narrow paved part of the trail, take the first left back into the woods (there are two big boulders each side of entrance there). You'll come to a lake look off with built in benches. Nice spot. But turn right there and wlk a little ways and on the left is the nest!

ETA: Alternatively, just walk south along the lake until you see the nest.
