  • Our nature study is slowly expanding ... At first all my son wanted to do was collect rocks. We’ve identified them, learned about different earth processes like volcanism and erosion, connected back to our prehistory/fossil study... but I was feeling like we were teaching a natural endpoint and wanted to broaden the scope of what we could study on our #naturewalks ...
.
Back in the fall we collected and made rubbings of leaves from our local trees. Now we are going back and examining the bark, the roots, the mosses growing around them, and their general health. Our bark rubbings didn’t really come out, but it got my son up close and personal with the trees so it accomplished that goal!
.
On our way out of the park we found a tree that had a large branch break off. We collected a piece that had snapped off and started looking closer - the tree is pretty much hollow on the inside, but new growth is continuing on the outer branches! We will have to investigate more to see what happened to this tree and whether it can survive long term in this condition...
.
What are your fav resources, books etc to study trees?

For those of you in Massachusetts looking for dog friendly/off leash parks, it doesn’t get better than Callahan! Highly recommend for romping, stick eating and chasing squirrels 🐾🌲🐿

  • Juvenile dusky woodswallow (Artamus cyanopterus) perching on a branch. The juvenile plumage is spotted while the adult morph is completely smokey brown with dark blue wings (as indicated in their species name, cyano = a type of blue colour). At first I thought it was some sort of a butcher bird because of its bill shape, but upon confirmation from a bird expert, Peter Vaughan (he is amazingly knowledgeable!), it is indeed a woodswallow. Although I wasn't too far off because they are actually from the same family Artamidae as butcher birds! In Tasmania, these smug birds are common summer migrants!

  • Sometimes you've just gotta get away!
Explore, get lost, meditate, do a little yoga, breathe some fresh air, take in some hawk medicine, see some squirrels, butterflies and bees.
Get lost in nature, and let nature lead.
Today was one of those days..
#Namaste🙏🏼 my beautiful friends.
