The Chickadees are nesting in the Moon again! In the first part of the video…notice one of them arriving …then singing…and the other leaves the moon.
These photos were digiscoped in November…when we just bought our scope.
We didn't bring the scope yesterday when we went out with the Ranger on a bird walk.
The highlights of the day were a Worm-eating Warbler..a life bird for us.
and the first Summer Tanager of the year here.
The ferns are just starting to unfold…
Look at how fuzzy these ferns are. I don't know what kind these are…
But I thought they were very cool.
Today we go on a wildflower walk with the ranger..So we will be able to put names with the wild flowers and ferns
This one below is so delicate and artful.
I have a thing for bark. My mother says she does too. I guess its genetic..tee hee
I don't know what this tree is but will find out today on our ranger walk. The pieces of bark jut out like buttons that need to be pressed back in.
Weymouth woods is a Long Leaf Pine woods, with some wetlands…
That's where I saw the Whirligig Beetles doing their thing.
Did you know that their eyes are divided so that they can see above and below the water at the same time? Did you know that they can fly?
I was fascinated by the patterns they were making in the reflections.
I found the last morels from across the street. We need more rain to flush some new ones out. Tonight we will get some.
You must read this Morel story from a great blog i found recently
Jay found some nice Morels with his Dad and as far as I know still hasn't picked them. I threatened to get them myself!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
