Into The Outdoors 5/28/13 Issue

If you take delight in seeing various forms of wildlife, this is the time of year for you. If you get the chance, just take a jog or walk in the great outdoors, especially along the river. The Seybertown Road, close to my home, is home to countless species. In the last couple of weeks or so, I have seen an osprey, two eagles, a huge variety of songbirds, squirrels and others. This seems to be an exceptionally good year for butterflies. They are everywhere, and they are beautiful. In the very near future, a column will be devoted to them.
