Notes from the Wild
Barred owls, like all owls, exercise a mysterious hold on our psyches. Birders and non-birders alike are drawn to their expressive faces and large liquid eyes.
Over 300 species, totalling billions of birds rely on Canada’s boreal forest as breeding grounds, some boreal birds are migrating through Headwaters during the winter months.
A great many seeds tap into the mobility of birds and animals to spread themselves around.
Small wonder so many salamanders are active at this time of year, seeking last suppers of grubs and spiders, crickets and millipedes.
To the casual observer the flight of a butterfly appears haphazard and inefficient, something like the bobbing of a cork on turbulent waters.
