Crow Island BioBlitz
by Jasper and Georgie
Location: Crow Island Woods, Winnetka, IL
Date: September 22, 2015
Description: The trail had tracks and small plants grew out of the trail. We were surrounded by plants on either side. We saw mostly bees and ants but few other insects. We saw no other animals.
This was the tallest tree we saw. It was covered with climbing hydrangea.
These grew right next to the path in the sunlight and shade.
There was a lot of goldenrod along the trail, mainly in the sun.
White Tailed Deer Tracks
We found these deer tracks on the trail.
We found this honeybee on goldenrod (see above).
This burrow, found just off the trail, is probably a skunk or chipmunk burrow.
