New Phenology Place

My new phenology place is in Garnsey Park. This 150 acre park was once part of a family farm and is now owned by the town of Clifton Park. Because of this prior land use, the area is primarily rolling meadows with a forested ridgeline and border. It is open to the public for use as a walking area with nature trails.

In addition, it is a Bluebird habitat and has bluebird house boxes throughout the park. I picked a place to observe that had some of these blue bird boxes, and while I did not see any go in or come out of them while I was there, I was able to hear the bluebirds in the forested area on the one side of the trail.

The woody plants at this site include Eastern white pine and maple trees. These trees are all relatively young due to the nature of the area being formerly clearcut for crop production.

This is the link to the google map of the location, I had trouble actually embedding the map in this post.
