Algonquin Park Update: 16 January

This report was originally posted by Ron Tozer on ONTBIRDS (Jan. 16, 2017) and is provided here with the kind permission of the Ontario Field Ornithologists.


The road-killed moose placed in the Sunday Creek valley, off the Visitor
Centre viewing deck, has been attracting a variety of birds and mammals.
Sightings have included: wolves (briefly on January 8), fisher (January 14
and 15), American marten (January 14), red fox (most days), Common Ravens
(daily) and Bald Eagle (January 13).

Yesterday, a pack of wolves was heard howling in the valley and a single
wolf was seen on nearby Fork Lake, and two fishers and a fox were frequently
coming to the carcass. Already today, a fisher has been feeding on the
carcass and chasing two ravens away from it.
