Highlights of the Week

The first snow of the season fell Monday night into Tuesday.

I spied an American Mink at the edge of a salt marsh in Biddeford.

I twitched two male Hooded Warblers and an "Audubon's" Yellow-rumped Warbler (a Lifer subspecies) at Southpoint Sanctuary in Biddeford Pool.

Wild Edible of the Week

I ate a wild fruit jello made with Feathery False Solomon's-seal fruit juice (from fruits I foraged/froze in September) and a bit of raw honey.

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