Louth Conservation Area: Revisit II

On the afternoon of Sunday April 19, Jean and I returned to Louth Conservation Area in search of the elusive flowering Trilliums.

We were greeted by flowering Trout Lily upon entering the conservation area. Trout Lily in other parts of the woodland, with less exposure to direct sunlight, had yet to flower.

We descended the escarpment this time and continued along the Bruce Trail until we reached Louth Falls.

Looking upstream from the top of Louth Falls.

Looking downstream from the top of Louth Falls.

As you can see, the Trilliums had yet to flower on this day.

But the Hepatica were well represented.

Bird activity was low. We only found, Black-capped Chickadee (2), Downy Woodpecker (1), American Robin (6) and a flock of 50 European Starling in a nearby farmer's field.

A May visit to the conservation area is planned.
