There is a Forest Preserve just up the street from my new job. I've stopped in a couple times on my way home to wander around a bit. It's nice that even in the middle of the suburbs there are a few places to enjoy a small piece of nature. right now the wildlife seems to consist of Robins and an amazing number of Red-Wing Blackbirds. I did manage to spot a couple Downy Woodpeckers (I think)! They were pretty far away though, and they are really small, so they came out pretty little. I'll have to work on my stalking skills I guess.

Go back Home!
