Third Chute Panorama: Ontario Waterfalls

Loggers found five sets of waterfalls and rapids on the Bonnechere River and built Log Chutes around them. This is the Third Chute of the group located in downtime Douglas. Access is not easy but going south on Mallock St. and left Emilin will bring you down to the Bonnechere River. Bonnechere Falls was the first chute,  the Second Chute is in Douglas, the Fourth Chute is near to Douglas and the Fifth Chute used to run through the gorge at Eganville.

Great Blue Heron eats a large catfish

Great Blue Heron with a catfish

It can be amazing to watch a Great Blue Heron catch and eat a large fish. After catching the fish with a lightning strike, it brought it to a shallow spot where it proceeded to strike it repeatedly, impaling it each time. No doubt it wanted to make sure there would be no movement of the victim when swallowed and a possibility of a severe injury from the fishes fin spines. It would also serve to help digest the prey, a formidable project involving masses of scales and bones.

Following is the entire sequence:
