Part journal, part ID guide, and part sketchbook.
Mostly mushrooms, some birds, a few moths, and plenty of other natural history topics.

Mid-February Lichen Watching
I took a trip to the North Shore this past weekend, to look for Boreal Owls who are moving into northern Minnesota this year from boreal forests in Canada due to a shortage of prey. While wandering through the woods I came across a stand of trees that were beautifully adorned with a variety of lichen species. I forgot about owls for awhile and admired the variety of patterns, textures, and colors made by the lichens.
