Lakeside Nature Center

This was a nice place to spend the day. Inside, there is a display of local wildlife: outside, there are miles of nature trails.

Some photos:

The nature center

Albino garter snake

Rehabbed Mississippi Kite–he can’t fly

Tiger Salamander. What an adorable little guy.

Great Blue Heron outside at the pond

Woodpecker–not sure which species

Wild strawberry

As always when I go into the woods, I spent some time turning over logs. This is a clutch of salamander eggs, but I didn’t see Mommy anywhere.
