Spring Ephemeral of the week.

This week's spring ephemeral has a very distinguishable leaf.  As many spring flowers are already blooming, pay close attention to what is growing in the woods around you.

Tomorrow, I'll be sure to post the pictures of the plant in bloom to see if you can identify the species.

I also promised you some photographs of the bald eagle that had driven by on the first day of spring.  I have finally gotten organized enough to have the correct camera and cord ready for action.  The photos aren't spectacular, but look closely and tell me what you think he may be eating!

I saw a great horned owl perched in a tree on the side of Rt 322 west of Harrisburg this weekend.  I was not the driver, so I was not able to stop to get photographic evidence of the bird, but I know what I saw.   If you put any "exotic" potted plants outside, I'd recommend bringing them in tonight, at least in our corner of Chester County it is supposed to get down below freezing tonight.

  1. I saw a bald eagle in the Laurels in the Fall. Do you suppose there's a nesting pair in this area?

    1. To my knowledge there have been two nests within a fifteen mile radius of the Laurels (as the eagle flies). This could certainly account for the increased eagle activity throughout the area.
