Back out on the main dirt road I show Les Lilly Lake with its Beaver House. It is full of waterfowl and we spend a time identifying various species. Wading birds are always present here as well. Some years ago there was a Trumpeter Swan nesting pair who had used this pond for years found shot dead and left floating on the lake. A reward was offered and it was always hopeful that someone in a bar might braggingly give themselves away but it never happened. There is surely a special place for these kinds of idiots who we still call human beings

  1. Such a tragedy - a trumpet swan. Have you ever taken a photo of one? You really live in a beautiful area.
