3:20 p.m. Overcast. Decided to take a walk in my own woods to check on the RATTLESNAKE PLANTAIN. There’s a WOODCHUCK hanging around in my side yard. Heard a VEERY singing from the woods behind my house. No sign of flower stalks on the RATTLESNAKE PLANTAIN yet, but there’s a HERMIT THRUSH singing close by, which seems like a good omen. After visiting the Rattlesnake Plaintain Knoll, I decided to drop down and cross the brook to the Nature Center’s Brook Trail. It’s a fairly easy crossing here. From the Brook Trail I heard an OVENBIRD and a BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER. 5:20 p.m. On my way home I heard a CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER at Blood’s.
