Our moose drought finally ended this past weekend. It's been two years since a moose has shown itself at Silver Lake. I was watching a bird and saw what looked like a large bird fluttering its wings and suddenly realized it was the ears of a moose flicking the flies away.
It's quite small and we assumed it to be immature, maybe born earlier this summer, and as it turned out, this was very likely true. Deep in the reeds, but not very far away, stood a larger moose (a mother?).
