I was walking along the trail when I heard scuttling and rustling leaves. There were hundreds and hundreds of these things out there.
Growing along the creek bank and in the grass under the trees. A lovely spread of purple and white with purple blush
Leaves just coming out. Unusual bark had RAISED ridges.
13 in trees eating insects. I saw one in a tree, it had just caught an insect and was sitting in the branches. I was able to walk within 12 inches of the bird and it did not fly away. Amazing!
Growing in the understory near a creek. Grass was interspersed with moss.
This tree did not have as much ridging on the bark as the other specimens. I will go back in a week to compare the leaves. They were just opening and the shape was indistinct.
No photo this time. Bicycle commutting in the dark both ways.
This one is on the street in front of my house. bummer.
