Today's hike at the Elachee Nature Science Center focused on spring wildflowers, but perhaps the most exciting appearance was of a redtail hawk that kept circling overhead, obviously looking for lunch (or trying to make the acquaintance of the injured redtails in the cages). Beautiful bird.
But, on to plants! We saw lots of Trillium (Trillium cuneatum), above, but none yet in bloom. Also huge clumps of doghobble, and Galax (Galax aphylla) - top, with Christmas fern.
