I spent a night at Diamond Cove on Great Diamond Island in Maine's Casco Bay. It was late April and I was aroused from sleep by "nature's alarm clock," a cacophony of various songbirds letting each other know that they were alive.
Unable to go back to bed, I went for a walk just before 6AM near the fresh water pond that used to be the source of ice for the former Fort McKinley.
I heard the splash of a beaver diving. At first I thought it was because of my presence, but in an opening in the pines I observed a female Great Horned Owl perched on a branch just beyond the pond.
Later in the day I found her nest and in May I spied two owlets peering at me through the dense cover of pine needles.
