October 12, 2009
A cool start to the day transitioned into a comfortable afternoon. During a brief hike into Hubbard Park, it certainly felt like a transitional time of year. Dark-eyed Juncos are again present in the area after being absent most of the summer. A huge flock of Robins continues to take advantage of the abundance of fruiting trees and plants at NBNC. Active amphibians such as Northern Two-lined and Northern Dusky Salamanders were observed in a stream and a Clouded Sulphur was seen flying in the fields (will this be the year's last butterfly?) As the season continues to change, we'll continue to watch the changing wildlife here at the Nature Center.
