Nature notes 1

Nature notes: 16 February 2023. Hespeler, Ontario. Most of the snow has gone. Only a few patches left.

Saw a couple of chickadees, two grey squirrels, one black squirrel in the woods. Heard a woodpecker (sound on in the video to hear it). Heard some crows and saw them flying along the edge of the wood. The woodpecker is still drilling away intermittently as I write this.

On the way home I saw two more black squirrels and another grey one.

The sky was grey and overcast.

According to the weather app on my phone, the temperature was 2°C at 8:35 am.

The featured image of this post is an interesting rock I noticed in the wood, next to where some trees fell down in last April’s big storm.

A rock with pink and black stripes, probably metamorphic rock, resting on the ground which is carpeted with last autumn’s leaves.

The reason I’m doing this is that it seems like a good idea to record these things so that there’s an opportunity to compare year-on-year. I’d strongly encourage others to do the same in your own local area.
