Bird Eye View

There have been a few changes since I last visited my site. The deciduous trees have very few leaves and the stream and ground are now covered in leaves. I find little signs of anything using my site as a habitat as organisms are probably preparing for the winter. The temperature is also much cooler.

Intro to my Phenology Place

I chose Centennial Woods as the place for my phenology blog. I chose this specific location because it reminded me of a place in the woods near my house where me and my friends would hang out in middle school. The place at the woods near my home also had a small stream and fallen tree so this location felt familiar. This site is in Centennial Woods. It is to the left of the path right before the big hill. It is located down a hill and contains a stream and borders the marsh. It is surrounded by mostly deciduous trees, however it does contain a few evergreen trees. The tree species that I found were mainly red maples, sugar maples, black cherries and eastern white pines. I also found buckthorn, barberry, and several types of ferns. There were also cattails that bordered my location as a marsh is located right next to my site. I also found that the larger trees were located away from the marsh. There was also less tree cover at my site compared to the rest of the forest.
