The Preserve - February 27, 2013

 

It’s amazing how much a week can make a difference.  Last week the prairie was bare, this week, it has been blanketed with 9 inches of snow.  It is interesting to also see the difference of weight in snow.  With our last snow, it was very heavy and buried the prairie.  The snow we received this week was more wet and did not have as much ‘weight’ to it when it fell; so only parts of the prairie are under the snow.   The bison are similar to last week, all though, you can see a little more.  The only birds I heard were crows off the background.  I believe the rest of the birds have found shelter until the snow starts melting.
