Backyard Almanac: As the days grow shorter, wildlife starts to prepare for the new season.
Naturalist Judy Gibbs joins us this week on Backyard Almanac. Hawk Ridge observers are seeing the end of nighthawk migration, but many bald eagles are passing through these days on their way south. Some wildflowers that you might see out and about include ragweed, as well as butter-and-eggs (aka common or yellow toadflax). The average first day of frost in the Twin Ports area is just a couple of weeks away, so keep an observing eye open for signs of autumn's approach as you head out on your nature walks.
