We had had as many as 60 dark eyed juncos (Junco hyemalis) at our feeders all winter. These white breasted, dark gray birds of the Sparrow Family Emberizidae had been trilling their song for weeks. Usually they have migrated farther north in Pennsylvania and beyond by mid April, but last year they stayed for the entire month..
We like to think that our own younger but mature forest is also creating soil as we allow our trees to fall over and rot, creating, as our young nephew Patrick once cried over and over, “Dirt, dirt, dirt” while sifting the powdery, reddish brown remains of red oak branches through his fingers. Those powdery remains of the heartwood and sapwood appear to be a nursery for the downy rattlesnake plantains I’ve discovered inside and outside our exclosure. When we first put up the exclosure, I found a large colony of this orchid growing on a slope where several trees had rotted down to heartwood and sapwood.

It looked so much like the nice little switch cane But just to make myself feel better, I will tell you that this bamboo would also need a 12 barrier above ground as well as below because its shoots do this serpent thing where they come up out of the ground and then dive back down, like they are swimming in the earth. They go right over the side of any short barrier and if the first dug up root is any indication, they can dive a lot deeper than 12 too. Yikes! The only thing to do with this one is get it gone and fast! lol.
A local doctor will speak briefly about the diverse benefits of mindfulness before the walk begins. Subsequent walks are planned Aug. 12 at Mount Charleston and Sept. “(The coalition) has members from mosques, Christians, blacks whites .
