Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Adventure Day 19, July 17
It was yet another Nova Scotia summer day; mixed clouds, sunshine and moderate temperatures.
Alas, we have passed mid July and the warblers are bunching up and moving so they will be harder to find but when you find one there are usually several others as well. It is remarkable that fully three quarters of our mid summer wood land birds are warblers.
The cycle of life in nature is amazing. Two warblers arrive in the spring and have four offspring. Now there are six warblers and they all head south. Fours warblers perish through predation, weather events, starvation or just bad luck like flying into a building. So the following spring two warblers return to start the cycle again. This is a stable population despite the losses.
A species almost wiped out by human stupidity and greed.
Tell these insects that the Moon Vine is not predatory.
