An Update

I am always impressed with how quickly the tallgrass prairie greens up after a spring burn. Here is the Ojibway Prairie Provincial Nature Reserve 25 days after the fire. It is now more lush than nearby sites that didn't burn!

The squirrel family has finally vacated my "owl box" (see post from March 9). The old box was taken down and the new box is ready to be installed.

Here are the baby squirrels back on April 18.
