I haven’t spent a lot of time in my spot for the past couple of weeks. I did visit my spot twice. Once was to observe birds; I went with Jacob from NR1. There were a lot of birds out and we identified a variety of new birds and wandered around past my spot. The second time I went out I had to finalize my GPS plots. It took awhile for my google maps to recognize my coordinates when I put them in. Leaves were still falling and oak trees still had their leaves. I noticed some American Beech leaves, which is interesting because I haven’t yet spotted any beech trees. I noticed the mushroom fungi are smaller. I came up with a short poem I’m going to post!
