This is a continuation of a few photos I posted using my new camera at Broad Meadow Brook last Saturday.
Wow..its been a week already…time sure does fly.
414 Massasoit Road
Worcester, MA 01604
Explore hundreds of acres of woods, fields, streams, and marsh. Interpretive signs and kiosks will guide you along the many trails. Look for 78 different species of butterflies
Jeff and I walked about four miles taking various trails.
There are maps of the trails offered as you enter the Center.
This is a small nature play area.
The paths are mostly wooded and it’s a fairly easy walk.
A small brook runs thru
This looks like some type of Agaricus Mushroom
onotropa uniflora, also known as the Ghost Plant, Indian Pipe, or Corpse Plant
I have no idea what this tiny little mushroom is.
What do you do when you see a tree with a hole in it?
We had a a small list of birds seen and heard this day..
They do offer a bird checklist online.
Cedar Waxwings hanging out.
This path follows a small stream
be sure to wear your bug spray..
Lots of mosquitos..
The center had these pages from a book along the path..
A Place for Birds
by Melissa Stewart
My photos didn’t come out well..too much reflection.
This clearly written, richly illustrated introduction to birds and ecology describes the beauty and behavior of birds as well as some of the ways people are protecting birds and their habitats. Pointers on how youngsters can help birds in their own neighborhood are included.
From what I saw it is a book that belongs on every child's book shelf.
It shows the connection between Man,environment and nature and how we can negatively impact or help nature.
Its been very busy with family and Wedding planning…
Hope to get out and take more photos soon.
