Adirondack Moose on the Loose!

Moose are making a comeback in the Adirondack Region of upstate New York. According to the resident biologist, Saratoga County in the southern Adirondacks represents the southern border of moose territory in North America. He says some of them swam across the Lakes to get here from Vermont and some just ambled down from Quebec. Now the Adirondacks have a 'breeding population' (always a good thing) so we actually have some native moose running around - like the ones in today's photo. In order to keep track of the moose population, Ed the resident biologist gets to fly around in a helicopter looking for moose. Here is a link to more photos from yesterday's excursion. He found and photographed this cow moose and her two calves or babies. It looks like the sound of the helicopter may have interrupted their nap.
