Here’s some things to look for while you stroll around our Outdoor Loop Trail.
American robins flock together in winter searching for food sources such as berry laden trees and shrubs.
By this date last year Japanese apricot, or Chinese plum (Prunus mume) had been in bloom for two weeks. At this time in 2019 it had blossoms a week prior. It’s just now starting to come into flower this year.
Hermit thrushes are winter visitors.
Cedar waxwings can potentially be seen wherever there are berries.
And, when you pass the bird feeders in Catch the Wind, be sure to give a look for purple finches on the feeders or nearby shrubs.
But, you have to be there to see these things. So, what are you waiting for, get out and have a look around!
