Finally a Sunny Day – Lone Rock Point 11/4/18

This event map shows all of the interesting things that I encountered while walking to, from, and through my phenology spot.

Other than the sun being out, not a whole lot changed at Lone Rock Point in the last two weeks.  However, most of the deciduous trees that had fall colors two weeks ago had lost many of their leaves.  Additionally, any deciduous trees that were green two weeks ago had changed to having yellow or orange leaves.  The animal species that I observed two weeks ago (Grey Squirrel, Black-capped Chickadee, Golden-crowned Kinglet, and Yellow-rumped Warbler) were all still there.  However, I did find an additional bird species this time: a Barred Owl.  This was the most exciting part of my trip to Lone Rock, and I stayed with this bird for as long as I could before I had to leave.
