There’s a lot to take in here and along the stretch of trail just ahead. First, check the water's edge for marsh milkweed and it's pretty pink flowers. You may see water birds, such as ducks or an eagle or osprey flying over this bay in search of a fish. If you’re really lucky, you’ll see an osprey dive into the water after a fish. Next, notice the evidence of beavers felling trees. Beavers use the fallen trees both for food and for building their lodge and dams. Finally, watch for turtles sitting on logs in the water or a frog’s eyes just above the water’s surface. You may also hear the banjo string “plunk” of the green frog!
