Highlights of the Week
While heading to Portland on Thursday, I glimpsed a late American Kestrel hover-hunting alongside I-295 in South Portland.
A drake Barrow's Goldeneye is back in his usual spot below the Route 1 dam on the Saco River between Biddeford and Saco.
Wild Edible of the Week
I enjoyed Autumn-olive jello that Jenny made with fruits we foraged (and froze) back in September.
Nature Challenge of the Week (for you, the reader)
During a snow storm, find a quiet place outside to sit and listen to falling flakes. (If there's no snow, substitute rain or wind.)
