Mid-June is a great time to experience late spring and early summer blooms. We are far from the peak of wildflower season, but there are a great variety of delicate and bold colors to find while attentively hiking. The birds that have stayed past migration are now here for one reason: to breed. The males are claiming territory and defending these areas with incessant vocalizations, including songs and calls.
Not pictured: a Great Crested Flycatcher calling near the pavilion.
Visit this week and catch the last of the spring flowers and the beginning of summer!
