Bev Paulan retired from flying for the Wisconsin DNR earlier this year and while it was hoped she would be able to continue to do aerial surveys on a contract basis, unfortunately this did not pan out.
In a classic example of “you can take the girl out of the aircraft but you can’t take the aircraft out of the girl” Bev still likes to fly in her personal aircraft whenever possible. Hey, why get stuck in traffic if you have the option to fly above it!?
Last week Bev was out on a pleasure flight and snapped a couple photos which she sent along to share with you.
After their nest apparently failed, these two moved about a mile away – to the same location they spent time at last year when their nest was predated by a coyote.
And here is #5-12 (Henry) in the marsh near our former pen site. No, he hasn’t lost his gal pal Patty and decided to hang out with a deer. She was nearby.
