I am not yet at the point where I can ID mosses, something I will enjoy learning. The spore forming bodies on this should help.

Considered an invasive, but I love the berries better than native raspberry.

The meadow is at peak bloom and growth. I am trying to ID some of the many grasses. A retired Virginia Tech biologist has assisted me.

Description

I have been observing a black vulture nest for the past two months. The two chicks hatched on about 2 May, and fledged on 6 July. I now see them on top of the abandoned house were the nest was. Note; a fox and a possum were caught on camera in the building with the chicks two days before fledging, but did not appear to disturb the now adult sized birds.

This fox visited the abandoned house that has been the site of a black vulture nest for the past two months. The 'chicks' at full size were present. They fledged two days later.

Galax is common in SW Virginia, but rather rare right here. I have found only a few plants in one area. This one in bloom makes the search easier.
