Lac du Bois Road Wildlife, and Wildflowers June 24, 2022

Isaac and I went and checked on some owl boxes in the area. No owls unfortunately but 2 separate Northern Flying Squirrels were using the boxes. This is a difficult to find local mammal that is probably more common than thought. Easily overlooked. We also saw a Black Bear on our drive. On the way back, the numerous wildflowers stole our attention and we spent some time discovering, photographing, and naming them.
