Doug's Mountain Journal - Spring 2017

All of the rain this season meant showy displays of local flora to be enjoyed this Spring. Doug enjoyed them all in his wanderings - owl's clover, goldfields, johnnie tuck and clarkia. Birds also enjoyed the abundance - and Spring arrivals like Swainson's Thrush and Wilson's Warbler could be heard singing. And there is an exciting butterfly story - the reintroduction of the extirpated Bay Checkerspot butterfly to the Mountain by Dr. Stu Weiss of Creekside Science.
