This morning I met up with Miles Hearn and his Saturday morning nature walk group up at Wilket Creek Park. There are really multiple parks connected here, the main two being Wilket Creek and Sunnybrook Park and there are great walking trails through the area.
Right at the parking lot where we meet, there are a number of bird feeders and they attract all kinds of birds.
We saw the beginnings of wildflowers this morning, and lots of budding trees. Spring is upon us. Very soon we’ll be seeing the migrating warblers coming through.
We saw some bitter dock. It reminded me of the sorrel we grow in our front garden. A google search confirmed that sorrel is a species of dock.
There is an area along Wilket Creek with lots of coltsfoot in bloom. This plant is considered medicinal.
