On the North Point of Lake Eden, we maintain a wooded shoreline buffer and are rewarded by visits from a diversity of wildlife.  Loons fish off our shores.  A couple of years ago I surprised a hermit thrush at the edge of our picnic grove (above).  Last spring we found a family of raccoons nesting in our tool shed.  And once we tracked a shy black bear up our path (below).

Perhaps most notable is the wildlife we do not see on our land: we have no problem with geese.  Instead, Lake Eden’s resident Canada geese hang out on the southern peninsula, where the lakeshore has been cleared to create an expansive lawn.
