Sunday at Gahagan

A goshawk sat high in one of Gahagan's stately pines yesterday. Good chance it has a nest. This large predator bird likes the tall, mature forest and deftly maneuvers through the understory chasing down grouse, other birds and small mammals. If you venture near its nest, beware! They defend their territory fiercely - attacking a human is not uncommon.

The marsh marigolds are in full bloom along Tank Creek and the adjoining wetlands. Take a stroll on the Gahagan boardwalks. There is a large patch of them nearby.
