For today’s observations of my site on this chill, overcast day, not much has changed. Significant changes are apparent in the fact that more leaves have fallen so there’s more ground cover. Additionally, the stream seemed to flowing at a slower velocity today compared to the last time I visited my site. More wildlife activity was present today, I saw a chipmunk and heard many different birds, but I could not identify their calls. Just from observing the site visually without digging into much detail, it’s clear that the site looks more “barren” or “empty” because of the lack of color and leaves on the trees as winter approaches.
