Celery Farm Walk Is Saturday!

Marsh Warden Mike Limatola and I are a leading a 90-minute nature walk around the Celery Farm Saturday morning at  8 a.m.

Target birds: Red-breasted Nuthatch and any warblers passing through. Mike and I also saw a (dead) Star-nosed Mole, quite a strange little beast.yesterday.

This walk is for nature-lovers of all ages and birders of all levels. We'll also look for bugs and weird plants.

Meet at 8 a.m.. at Green Way cul-de-sac on the north end of the CF off Franklin Turnpike. Check celeryfarm.net for any updates.

To register, contact Jim Wright at celeryfarm AT gmail.com.

Another Day, Another Baby Turtle

_MG_5376I found this young (native) Painted Turtle in my driveway yesterday afternoon after nearly stepping on him.

Celery Farm Marsh Warden Mike Limatola carried the youngster to the stream/ditch behind my house and set the little guy free.

Again, a coin magically appeared next to the turtle. I'm just guessing, but I'd say this young turtle was roughly the size of a quarter, give or take a penny.

I did not realize he had a pocket big enough. _MG_5388
