Nature This Week is part of Greenbelt's monthly Nature Calendar blog.

Visit Jim's February Nature Blog on Trees of Essex County.

This week at Greenbelt properties:

GHOWhen the snow is flying, think of the female Great Horned Owl incubating her eggs in an old crow nest. Listen for her call.

Skunk mating is in full stink everywhere in the county.  Their small, long-clawed tracks will lead you to their dens.

Cabin fever sets in unless you go for a walk  to look for turkey tracks in the snow at Elizabeth How Reservation / Ipswich or go for a long cross-county ski at the Pingree Woodland / Hamilton, looking for fisher tracks along the many eskers there.
