"… to be used for nature study and as a preserve for birds and other wildlife."- Carmen Hambleton Warner
Ack! I know that the previous post said the off-trail hike was in April. That was not right! It’s in March of course, spring starts in March. I have fixed that. Also, I am aware that the calendar is not at the bottom of the blog anymore. I don’t know what has happened. And, I can’t figure out how to put it back, but I am working on it. I don’t have my paper calendar in front of me at the moment, but I will get the dates of the walks and such written out in the next post. If you need to know before than, just call.
Here is a tid-bit that may help the spring fever. I was coming home from my folk’s place in Delaware county today. I was coming off the Lancaster by-pass and there are a couple of grassy areas around that confluence. It is well known to some of us that live and work around there that there is a Red-tail hawk who hunts these grassy areas. Well, today instead of one hawk there were two! Better than that, one swooped down in front of me (while driving) and appeared to try and lock talons with another who was already on the ground! Possible mating stuff going on? It such a shame that there wasn’t a safe way to get stopped to watch what happened next.
Ah well, the signs of spring are out there if you look closely! Happy March everyone!
