I wanted to do a post on the wildlife in the Haliburton Region where our cottage is located. I have to admit as I started thinking of the various animals that I knew of it was a huge list. I decided to bring you a few pictures and some insight into these animals over a few posts. There are way too many to do in one post. As I went searching for pictures of various animals I ran across an amazing Canadian photographer, John E Marriot at http://www.wildernessprints.com. If you love photography check him out! (Many of the pictures in here are from his site)
There are mammals, amphibians, birds and reptiles and later some fish! I think I will start from large to small.
Unfortunately, their numbers are dwindling.
Some people call Lynx, Bobcats but they are not the same.
A Bobcat is smaller, it's tail is longer and it has 3 rings on it.
A Lynx, as seen in the pic above, has a solid black tip on it's tail.
You can see his tail with the 3 rings easily.
