Hidden most of the day, our Great Blue Heron can often be seen on the far side of the Wetlands waiting for us humans to leave for the day.
The skies were clear most of last week providing the opportunity to see the waxing gibbous moon each morning.
Groundsel Tree is nearly ready to cast its seeds to the wind.
Last week I spotted a new species of dragonfly here at the Museum, a Blue-faced Meadowhawk. I see Autumn Meadowhawks each year around this time, but this is the first Blue-faced I’ve come across.
And on Tuesday (10/29), there were two pair of Hooded Mergansers in the Wetlands. They’re a bit early, and with the warm 70 degree weather they seem out of place, but they have returned.
So, come on out and see what you can discover in the Wild.
