Thacker Mountain

Sunday, April 10, 2016

This mountain, easily accessible from Hope, has many wetlands; an old homestead and a mixed forest that attracts spring migrant birds. 

Highlights were red-breasted sapsucker, 2-pairs of nesting Canada  geese, red-eyed vireo and, in bloom,

chocolate lilies, striped coral root, calypso orchid, trillium and chickweed monkey flower.

Thanks for leading & the photo, Scott.
