Pond Habitat on Parade


This afternoon’s calm allowed me to hop up on a grassy mound and get a better “bird’s eye view” of what I like to call Ibis pond* .175 acres of meadow and shore maintained by FIConservancy appears quite different in dormant winter months. Soon enough, the vivid colors and fresh scents of native plants will sprout lush habitat welcoming home songbirds, insects and Monarchs!

*Named Ibis Pond, because my very first video (July 2015) documented a juvenile Glossy Ibis in the pond. See Video Snippet “Ibis in the Morning”.
