Spring Ramble a big success

From Tim Clark, our Land Bank Steward:

“A very large thank you to everyone who made the Spring Ramble such a  large success. Twenty people had a wonderful time wandering and looking  and talking and learning. An extra thanks goes out to David and Beth for  sharing their knowledge and curiosity of the plants and birds on the  Hill! Everyone commented on what fun it was and how much they learned.  And we all made it out alive!”

Beth St. George identified the following plants in bloom:

Dovefoot Geranium
Woodland Strawberry
Spotted Coralroot
Trailing Blackberry
Bicknell’s Geranium (I think this is the correct species)
Pacific Sanicle
Candyflower = Siberian Miner’s Lettuce
Small-flowered Alumroot
Sea Blush
Bedstraw (Fragrant?)
Foamflower
Baldhip Rose
Heart-leaved Twayblade
Miner’s Lettuce
Great Camas
Buttercup species: I don’t know these well.

David and Beth’s bird list:

Cassin’s Vireo
Townsend’s Warbler
Pacific Wren
Wilson’s Warbler
Dark-eyed Junco
Pacific-slope Flycatcher
Red-breasted Nuthatch
Olive-sided Flycatcher
Orange-crowned Warbler
Hairy Woodpecker
Song Sparrow
We must have seen American Robin, too, but I don’t have it written down!
