    A Riverside Farm

    As I drove on, I left the Saint John River and headed overland along one of its tributaries called Washadamoek Lake (into which the Canaan River flows), not far from the small village of Codys. I get great enjoyment out of seeing some of the older farmsteads with their very 'lived-in' appearance. This one had a great location beside the water of the Lake. It was not far from here that I spotted a Bald Eagle cruising the skies for a possible afternoon fish snack!

    White-Tailed Deer

    New Brunswick has an abundance of wildlife. One of the advantages of a canoe is that you can paddle quietly along and, very often, surprise wildlife that would otherwise hear you coming for miles if you were crashing through the underbrush! In this case, we came across a White-tailed Deer feeding at the edge of the water. This is no great discovery because I actually get them in my back yard all winter long as they come out of the forest searching for easier pickings. They will often come up to my bird-feeder and beat it about as they nibble on the seeds!

    Something Different

    Although Common Loons are a fixture on the lakes of New Brunswick, it is much more difficult to see a Red-Necked Grebe. These birds (18 inches long) are about half the size of a loon and they are usually found in lakes and ponds searching for small fish, crustaceans, tadpoles and insects. They spend their winters in the southern USA. We saw this bird while we were leaving our first campsite on the beach. When hiking or canoeing, I never leave home without my birdbook and binoculars because you never know when you will come across something interesting!
