Highlights of the Week

A hard freeze Wednesday into Thursday marked the start of the white season here in southern Maine.

Strong northwest winds on Friday stripped many leaves from Oak trees.

On Saturday afternoon in Biddeford Pool, I spotted a Snowy Owl at South Point and an Eastern Coyote crossing Mile Stretch Road.

Wild Edible of the Week

I foraged Ocean Quahogs -- sold as Mahogany Clams -- from a local seafood counter.

Nature Challenge of the Week (for you, the reader)

Find an evergreen fern (e.g., Christmas Fern, Evergreen Wood Fern, Rock Polypody).
