May Flowers: Blue-eyed Mary

Published by under Phenology,Plants

The first time I saw Blue-eyed Mary was at Guffy Hollow near Irwin, PA.  When it grows profusely – as it did there – the forest floor is carpeted in blue. 

It’s blooming now at Enlow Fork.  Don’t miss it.

Getting Ready to Walk

American Robin nesting on traffic signal (photo by Sam Leinhardt)

Remember this bird?

Shortly after I blogged about the Don’t Walk robin, Tony Bledsoe was on Craig Street with a friend and told him about the bird nesting on the traffic signal.

Sam Leinhardt is an avid photographer and was intrigued by the idea of creating a chronicle of the robins’ nest.  Happily, Sam got in touch with me and allowed me to use his photos.

Click on the picture to see a slideshow of nesting activity that spans about one week.  The babies grew a lot, didn’t they!

If all goes well, Sam will have fledging pictures soon.
