I'm not in to work until 2:30 today, so I decided to take a morning walk in the Dykeman Spring Nature Park. The first thing I noticed was that there were a lot of baby Eastern Cottontails hopping around munching on grass. I stopped counting after seeing five. There were also a lot of newly-fledged birds testing out their new flying skills. All in all, it was a pleasant walk, and I brought you some things to look at from it. Enjoy!
