It has started. The botany big year. I faded in that grim winter we experienced, and I want to see blooms. It has started. Greenwald park in Camden county is a good wet woodland. Small, but good habitat. My outdoors location choices will be based on where to see certain species. Just like in birding! This place is loaded with Spring Beauty. And other species. And loaded with Pheobes today. And Ruby crowned Kinglets. I met another birder who also had Golden crowned.
I will chase county and state birds. A friend found a Virginia Rail at the Philly airport. near there. So off I go! Philly bird. I could use for Camden. I have been hearing reports of Virginia Rail scattered around various places. This is probably a good time to check a few Camden spots. For botany too of course!
