We took a drive through Litchfield County on Sunday so Greg could checkout flyfishing prospects at the Housatonic River. It was a beautiful day and we saw some interesting wildlife through: Litchfield, Goshen, Cornwall, Salsbury; especially, Under Mountain Road and River Road. First the Buffalo Farm, then the Common Mergansers on the Housatonic. Met a teacher from the Gunnery and we talked for a while. Then further up we came across more Mergansers, Wood Ducks and what we think was a Mink. I have been trying to get better photos of Mergansers and Wood Ducks who are very shy. Unfortunately, they were all on the other side of the river. Coming home, saw a Black Bear standing on a side road as we passed! Greg couldn’t back up fast enough! The bear had already turned and headed back up the dirt road (toward a house). I did manage to get a few shots of him. But so wish we were driving slower and I had gotten an instant shot of him.
