VISITORS TO THE NEW HAMPSHIRE HABITAT

SUMMER OF 2017 VISITORS TO HABITAT

Summer of 2017 did not have a lot of activity. Visitors were few by numbers but many different ones. The Barred Owls most active visitors.  They were very active for about 3 weeks as the fledglings learned to hunt and feed themselves.

Only one frog in the garden pool this summer. We have had as many as a hundred or so. We called it Frogy.  The last couple of weeks or so Frogy is gone and we have seen a smaller one.

Garter snakes are regular visitors to the habitat and gardens. Lots of good things for them to eat.  Not many other snakes are visitors to the habitat. I am sure if we went into the backwoods we would find lots of other snakes.
