Animals recently seen

A friend and I saw the following animals on a late-night music drive through Durham and Newmarket, NH: MOUSE, FROG, DEER, SNAKE, and BAT. We were listening to an extended jam on Dark Star from a Dead show at Rotterdam Civic Hall, May 11, 1972.

On a late-night bike ride in College Woods, we saw a family of RACOONS and heard a howl that was probably a COYOTE’S.

Biking in Hallowell, ME, I saw a GREAT BLUE HERON on a pond and a RABBIT running in a ditch.

TURTLES, DRAGONFLIES, and a KINGFISHER were among the animals seen by me, Hilary, and my brother at Viles Pond (a.k.a. Vile Pond) at the Pine Tree State Arboretum in Augusta, ME.

Hilary and I drove to New Hampshire in separate cars, but we saw the same EAGLE.

A GOLDFINCH, a symbol of Christ’s resurrection, disappeared into bushes along Portland’s Eastern Promenade.

A MOCKINGBIRD sat in a pitch-pine on the Saco Heath.

SNOWY EGRETS, SANDPIPERS, and CORMORANTS flew over the Scarborough Marsh.

A PURPLE FINCH was resting on a tree outside our kitchen window.

There was a CRAB in a tide pool in Biddeford, ME.
