Alex thought it had a strong bacon flavor and did not like it at all 1 out of 10. I thought it tasted like a normal soda with a mild taste of pork or bacon 3 out of 10.
We purchased some duck jerky from Dublin Jerky to try.
Excellent jerky with a friable texture not chewy. A mildly sweet flavor make it a quite nice snack. 8 out of 10.
The Eastern Gray Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) is a tree dwelling squirrel native to the eastern part of the United States and Canada. It is very important in forest regeneration due to its habit of scattering and hoarding of seeds. It is common in parts of Europe and is considered an invasive species there. Alex took these pictures as the marauding culprits scattered and ate birdseed on our deck overlooking the river.
The eastern chipmunk (Tamias striatus) lives in deciduous wooded areas and urban parks throughout the eastern United States and southern Canada. It prefers areas with rocky outcrops as it is mostly a ground dwelling animal. Alex took these pictures from our living room looking out on the deck as it was eating birdseed that had been scattered by marauding Gray Squirrels.
Alex and Emma spotted this American Toad out by the river. The American toad (Bufo [Anaxyrus] americanus) is a common site here in the northeast. Luckily Emma did not pick it up as its skin is very slightly toxic.
