Fall Nature Walks: Can You Spot a Bird's Nest?
Now that the leaves have fallen from the trees, there are a lot of natural wonders exposed and easy for the careful observer to find. I recently noticed a bird's nest high up in an oak tree while out for a walk. I continued to look up and noticed a big bunch of leaves that was most likely the handiwork of a squirrel.
Next time you are out for a fall or winter nature walk, look carefully in the bushes and up in the tree branches around you, I bet if you are observant and patient, you'll spot a bird or beast habitat too!
While you're out there, see what you can see for lichen, galls and fungus too!
