This is a follow-up to Marshall’s post on Proven Lake. Ok, so Marshall tried to avoid this but we thought we would post a couple of videos to the site. Below we demonstrate how we monitor an IBA in Manitoba, or more precisely, how pointless these videos really were!
Video 1 – Finding the lake
Reaching the end of the channel, we realised that we cannot even make it onto the lake due to the dense, dead cattails.
Video 2 – Beaver lodge
Here is an old, presumably no longer used beaver lodge. The lack of fresh material suggests that beavers are not using this lodge. Extra prize to the person who can identify the bird calling – ok, it’s a bit easy, so no prize!
