Species list from Bird Park on 02/02/2020

WPMC Groundhogs day walk with James Tunney as walk leader.

Walk was lovely, the weather was a bit warmer and the sun was shining. Found a decent variety of mushrooms today! One of our member found a fossil as well. Unfortunately, another of our members got cursed after finding a stick figure in a tree, but hopefully it’s not a bad one!
