Nature Sightings

October 21, 2016

It is a great time to enjoy the brilliant foliage at Reinstein Woods on a sunny day. The forest is painted with bright reds, oranges, yellows and green. Raptors such as red-tailed hawks have been spotted frequently. Look in the sky for soaring turkey vultures during their migration south. Spring peepers have been heard on occasion, especially after a rain. Dragonflies have vanished earlier this year likely because of the summer drought. Normally autumn meadowhawks would be abundant on warm sunny days. Now that the weather is starting to cool and we are receiving more rain the ponds will begin to recharge. Beavers are actively adding mud and branches to their lodges for winter. Take some time to get out and enjoy the fall colors while they last.
