The next picture is along one of the many, many trails thru the bush - some good for birds and some just good for the scenery. We lucked out with the weather - no rain and mild.
We had to share the area with moose hunters and we did come across the remains of some moose who didn't make it - this lower jaw bone of a pretty big one was left hanging in a tree and the skin and hip bones were left scattered around. Most camps were left as they found it - clean and no litter. But others - not so much.
The next picture is of 4 of the 6 birds we got on Wednesday - I even cleaned one myself - I won't bother you with the details of how it is done to spare those of you that are a bit squeamish - but it does involve standing on the wings and pulling on the legs.....
The final picture is of 2 inukshuks we came across in the middle of nowhere - the loggers clear roads into the bush and some of them must have come across a way to use some of the big boulders they find. I, for one, think it is beautiful.
I leave you with a question....people up here pronounce partridge as part-ridge but I have always said par-tridge. How do you say it?
See Ya Bye
