FBF-specific Field Guide

More work was accomplished today on a Francis Beidler Forest-specific field guide. Visitors will not need to get this close to any of the animals to be able to identify what they are seeing. There is also no need to page through a collection of plants and animals that are not in the area around the boardwalk.

There are plenty of little yellow birds in the world. However, there is only one little, yellow-headed bird near the boardwalk. When the field guide is completed, it should be quite simple to identify the Prothonotary Warbler (Protonotaria citrea). The startled snake is an Eastern Cottonmouth (Agkistrodon piscivorus piscivorous).
