It’s early in the month and the marsh at the Sanctuary has frozen over a few times only to open up again on warmer days. One can still see ducks swimming about on those warmer days, but most of the action this time of year is on land. Chickadees will no doubt find you if you are out for a hike – hoping you have brought along some sunflower seeds to feed them with. A large bull moose with antlers was also seen on the meadow on the west end of the property just off of the pathway – an impressive sight! Even if you don’t see a moose directly, watch for its unmistakeable crescent-shaped hoof prints, plus watch for signs of freshly browsed (bitten off) twigs on Dogwoods, Willows or Saskatoons. This is sure signs that the “Twig Eaters” have been there!
