Creeper Pods

gd_1_16_09trcrSeed pods of Trumpet Creeper can be seen hanging from the now brown, leafless vines throughout the Explore the Wild/Catch the Wind Loop, most noticeably on either side of the path next to the Wetlands Overlook and behind the Sailboat Pond. These 4ā€-8ā€ long pods (image at left) contain small winged seeds. Iā€™m not sure if many bird species include these seeds in their diet, but I saw an American Goldfinch pecking at one of the half-open pods.
