Wednesday Explorers ~ Berries in the snow

Not everyone hibernates over winter. Birds, squirrels, and other animals head out to hunt for fruits, berries, tasty bark, and other yummy winter foods.

As you walk around this winter, be on the look-out for what berries and fruits you might find that could serve as food for animals. Around here there are always a few red multiflora rose hips, and sometimes dried grapes hanging on a vine.

What do you see in your neighborhood? Take your journal or camera along so you can draw a picture of the plant and berries - and then try to identify it later using a field guide.
