I've been at the Museum sooooo long - longer than many of our interns have been alive. I do a little bit of everything as part of my job: care for the animals, work with the keepers and other staff, spend time with guests. Lucky me!
I spend a lot of time behind-the-scenes, or here after hours, but if you really want to see me, you'll have to sign-up for a behind-the-scenes program.

More photos from Vermont

June 9th, 2012

I posted some photos in November that a friend of mine sent me. She has a lot of critters in her backyard in Vermont. These are some photos she sent me from her walk last week.

Enjoy

Greg- name that bug.

 

Greg- name that bird

 

Greg- name that mammal :)

  1. Common Green Darner for the “bugs.”
    I have to say Great Horned Owl for the birds although Long-eared is possible, but very unlikely, these two look like Great Horned.
    And for the mammal, that’s a cute little black bear!
    I’m curious though, where was the parent while your friend was taking the photo of the bear in the tree?

    The mother bear was on the ground nearby huffing/growling for her cubs, who came down. My friend was far too close at 100 feet, and very lucky to walk away unharmed.

Photos from Vermont

A friend of mine lives in Vermont. She sent me some photos she took from her backyard walk last week.

how cool to have bears in your yard!

  1. While I won’t say that this is normal everyday backyard stuff in the corner of New England that I’m from, it’s also not completely atypical or surprising. I saw many bald eagles over the Connecticut River every day and bobcats and bears were common place in state parks (or bending over the poles of backyard bird feeders). It’s really amazing to see how different the wildlife is down in the south compared to up north. A moose would be so out of place in Durham!
