Semester 2 first Phenology site visit

It has probably been around two months since I had visited my phenology site. Over the past two months, there have been many changes to my site, mostly due to the winter setting in and the snowpack that has formed on the landscape. The trees have all lost their leaves and are bare except for the Eastern white pines and the Hemlocks. There were many tracks in the snow, most were from humans that previously walked along the packed down snow. I fresh dog prints that I know was from a dog because I saw the dog form them. I also found some prints that were older not as obvious because of the rain and melting snow. I noticed there were fungi growing on the trees that had not been there during the warmer months, it was like a fan of different shades of green.
