came swimming along Montrose Beach on 18 May 2005, heading east
from the Wilson Boat Launch. When he reached the fenced shorebird
protection area he came briefly out of the water, which is when
I took this picture.
At Montrose Point on 9 February
2005, this Coyote was out on the ice near the fishhook pier. Since
I was walking out on the pier, the Coyote got up to move away from
me. It had to pass somewhat close to me, so it began to trot and then
broke into a lope as it headed toward the beach.
On 25 February
2005, Dave Antieau and I were at Montrose, and Dave spotted the Coyote
again. I was able to get more pictures from much closer this time.
Here is one of them.
had a chance to see the elusive Red Fox of Montrose Point on 7 October
2004. This fox had been present at Montrose Point since some time

On 22 May
2004 this opossum waddled out on the park lawn at Montrose Point after
a brief rain shower sent most of the human park visitors home.
At the Bill
Jarvis Migratory Bird Sanctuary, I spotted these dragonflies, a
male and female Twelve-spotted Skimmer. Note the distinctive pattern
of alternating black and white spots on the wings of the male, including
dark wing tips, that identify this species. The female lacks the
white spots. These photos were taken 22 May 2004.
