  1. Bakers dozen

    I had an amazing day up at my local spot collecting. There had been no new blasts or work at the quarry so I decided to scour the pit wall near the north end of a pond area near the road way down into the BobCaygeon formation material. Those who collect there will know the general area. . To my surprise I found very quickly a fortediscus edrioasteroid about 1 1/2 inches across. Will likely post something on it once it is prepped . I quickly noted that there was a crinoid layer about 3 inches above the layer the edrio was on and that there was a layer about 3 inches below the edrio that I could make out tail sections from pleurocystites. Well five hours later we had taken out probably a ton of rock between two of us.We had to remove about 4 feet of overburden to get to the first layer. If only we had brought a 6 foot pry bar we would have been golden. Regardless we excavated about 10 feet of wall going back about 2 1/2 feet. My reward an edrioasteroid, a cyclosystoid, a plate with two unknown at this point large crinoid calyxes, 13 cycstites (a combination of pleurocystites and amycystites). My friends reward an edrioasteroid and some crinoids.... We will be back next weekend with some heavier bars and my friend the excavating machine Kane...... Here is some pictures of the first one I prepped this morning.... We are blessed with some great collecting up here in Ontario Canada...... A number of you have been up to hunt with me over the years..... Hopefully more will make it in the future......

  22. So today I was excited when this book came in. It is not in print anymore and I was lucky I managed to order this copy. It talks about the gastropods, cephalopods, and vermes of the Georgian Bay formation of Toronto, Ontario. It even has some nice detailed plates of what can be found in the formation. I never even knew vermes (worms?) can be found in the formation.
  23. The older I get, the more spring has an appreciable effect on my energy and outlook. But, it also signals an end to cabin fever and getting back into the hunt. Spread out over two non-consecutive days, I took to getting back into practice by doing some collecting nearby. There are no "wow" specimens here, but certainly typical ones I find from a wide mix of stratigraphic units all in one place. The first is one of the areas I focus on, which are mostly little gullies where some larger rocks are exposed, and smaller ones get sifted.
  24. Hungry Hollow fossils

    Hi everyone! I'm finally starting to go through some of the things that Viola and I found when we visited Hungry Hollow back in April in preparation of doing a trade, and I was looking for some help with identifying the following items: Item #1, front and back: A tabulate coral perhaps? I think I can see corallites in the "back" photo... (or maybe a bryozoan...) Item #2, front and back: Another tabulate coral? (or perhaps another bryozoan...) Item #3, front and back: A bryozoan? This one looks different - it kind of looks like frilly layers... Thanks in advance! I may end up posting more stuff so keep an eye out for more requests for help!!! Monica
  25. Well, since moving to Ottawa, I haven't had the chance to go out fossil hunting. There wasn't a whole lot of info on the web about the geology here. So my wife and I decided to buckle up and find a spot ourselves (without any hammers or chisels). We tend to be very lucky people, but I was surprised by the THOUSANDS of trilobites we came across in a matter of 20 minutes. We were on the shoreline of the Ottawa river, we found a certain type of shale that was just crawling with them. If any lucky soul goes to the spot where we left all the remnants of our hunt, they will sure be having a good day. I'm especially excited that I was able to find trilos. Coming from Kansas, we don't really have them (although I've found a few). I'm excited to traverse the Canadian wilderness collecting fossils and upsetting my wife with all of the rocks I bring home. None of the bugs we found were complete, although we did our darnedest to find some. But here are a few pictures of our trip! (This is an extremely small fraction of what we found) What a beautiful time immersing ourselves inthe beauty of mother earth. Cheers!
