Dolphins are usually a fall visitor to this area. This is my first winter Dolphin sighting. I have asked other people here and no one can recall seeing Dolphins here in winter before this.

Great sighting! If it has ears with earflaps, it is a sea lion.  (reply...)

Great sighting! I believe that the fish is an ocean pout (Zoarces americanus).  (reply...)

Neat. Last summer I hunted a bit for boreal felt lichen (Erioderma) but didn't find it, it's even rarer and locations are somewhat guarded. (reply...)
36 days ago Mac Pitcher made the following comment on the observation of Blue Felt Lichen (Degelia plumbea) posted on July 30, 2016:
Degelia plumbea is abundant in Bond Park. In a 2006 survey there I inventoried over 600 individuals on less than thirty trees of four species. This significant population is probably the largest single concentration of this species anywhere in North America. Otherwise it occurs quite sparingly, mostly on Yellow Birch, throughout NF.

Interesting about the Degelia nomenclature, I was not aware. However it still seems to be called D. plumbea in places. There is a lot of it on the trees in Sir Robert Bond Park in Whitbourne as many have noted.
