Mooseogorsky’s Windchime Rhapsody

Britta Schroeder posted this video and brief explanation:

Healy, Alaska – As I lay in bed this evening, I could hear my wind chime blowing up, but when I looked out the window, not even a blade of grass budged.

I should clarify that the blender and the red bucket in the video are part of a paper-making project and have no food, nor have ever had food, in either. The chest freezer is also locked.



Hard to tell if the moose is playing with the chime or scratching an itch – or both.

Neighbors are different in rural Alaska!

    You’re welcome – I think we all need some smiles today!

  4. When my younger son lived in Anchorage, he sent a link to the Anchorage Daily News. The feature photo was a moose with its head completely inside the drive-thru window at a McDonald’s. Wish I had saved the picture.

    So what did the moose order at McDonald’s? Do they like french fries?

  6. The paper did not say. I suspect the moose was looking for salt and smelled the fries. We saw moose wandering along the street, grazing on grass between the sidewalk and street at the University of Alaska campus.

    In the photo of Brandi in the left seat of that Cessna floatplane, we were looking for both Beluga whales and moose. Moose hooves enable them to walk on the mudflats along Cook Inlet without getting sucked into the quicksand. If most other critters, including humans, go out there you may never be seen again. We never found the pod of whales seen earlier by bush pilots, but we did see a few moose on the mudflats.
