In the forest we found parts of a deer scattered about which was evidence that carnivores had been in the area. We also found some interesting bird's nests. One was on the forest floor and had fallen from a nearby tree and the other we found hidden in the gnarled roots of a giant uprooted tree. In the water surrounding the uprooted tree we discovered several sets of fish bones as well as scat that indicated presence of River otters in the area. We also found evidence of squirrels; pine cone feeding sites and bark stripping. Even though we did not find anything much in the way of animal tracks due to the rainy conditions, we did find indications of carnivore and prey species and their activities in the forest, which still provide important data and information for us about the area and its inhabitants.
Below is a gallery of pictures of our adventures and findings for our outing at Old Maid Flats.
Please take a look and enjoy!
