Red-Headed Wooddpecker.  We do not get many of these anymore as their numbers have decline significantly.  Their favorite habitat is Oak Savannas and many of these have been turned into farmland in my lifetime.

SPRING WOODLAND WILDFLOWERS PUTTING ON A SHOW IN FORESTVILLE

Bellwort.  The spring woodland flowers are blooming in great numbers now.  All of the flowers shown in today's posts can be found in just a 50 yard sections of the Ravine trail in Forestville St. Park.

Bluebells.  The Bluebells are just beginning their run.

The lowland trails of Forestville are now carpeted in white ( the False Rue Anemone.)
