Two Fruits

If, on your stroll around the Wetlands, you happen to notice small red, berry-like fruit on thorny, bare twigs along the water’s edge, you’re looking at Rose Hips. The small, red fruit of the various wild roses are eaten by many birds and animals on the Explore the Wild/Catch the Wind Loop. Also, Sycamoreballs,” the fruit of the Sycamore Tree, are another food source for the birds and animals that make their homes at the Museum. Of the birds observed at the Museum, I most often see American Goldfinches extracting seeds from Sycamore balls.
