Noons Visitors

We had some really cool visitors spotted near the hatchery in the last few weeks – one quite elusive for the area!

 

Red-Legged Frog:  Even though Port Moody is in the habitat area defined for these critters, they are rarely seen (and endangered) – so this was a real find!!

Here’s a link to some info about the species (courtesy of B.C. Frogwatch):  http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/wld/frogwatch/publications/factsheets/frogs/red-legged.htm

And a 2004 COSEWIC report on the endangered status of the species:  http://www.sararegistry.gc.ca/virtual_sara/files/cosewic/sr_red_legged_frog_e1.pdf

Bears:

A mom and three of her cubs paid a visit the other day…………….most likely drawn by the prospect of a quick and easy salmon dinner after the Pink’s flooded the Noons Creek system when we got a bunch of rain recently.

Momma and the kids – out for a stroll. They had just come up from the creek….looking for a quick salmon feed we think.

 

Momma Bear - what are you looking at?   :-)
