Fall afoot

As fall advances in the Upper Delaware River region, signs of animal activity remind us that winter is on its way. For now, the colorful foliage claims our attention, and it’s easy to spot the heightened movement of squirrels and chipmunks as they prepare for the leaner months. Canada geese draw our gaze upward as they stitch the sky with jagged lines and fill our ears with the sounds of their honking calls as migration gets underway.

With all this distraction, it’s easy to forget that amphibians and reptiles are also on the move, down in the zone where our sightless feet forge along. Take some time this fall to devote attention to the activities of these species who share our forest floors and waterways.
