April 27, 2008: Birding Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge

Today we took a walk at Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge. We got a few nice photos of flora and fauna on this beautiful April Sunday! We walked at the Kanyoo Trail, and Swallow Hollow Trail. (Maps below)

Wonderful series of photos and here in Catt. Co. we are seeing the Red Trilliums out early also! I wonder what it means?
