We all went for a nature hike around Sapsucker Woods on Sunday. Sapsucker is the location of the Cornell Ornithology Lab (scientists who study birds). This was a great little find for us (ok, we are new to the area). The kids had a great time. We saw a tree snake, frogs, deer, turtles on a log, woodpeckers, rabbits, and lots of different kinds of birds. It was nice to get out and stretch out legs. We could also tell during our walk that fall was on its way. Most of the forest was still in summer green but some trees were turning, the ferns were dying, and the goldenrod was in the final splashes of color. And the fact that we are getting 30-40 degree nights now helps.
Thanks for stopping by.
