September offers to the observing eye the first signs of seasonal changes. White pine and maple seeds begin falling, birds begin to flock together and check out next year's nesting possibilities. Crickets search for places to hibernate (often in our homes!) and chipmunks are storing as much food as they can, sometimes much more than they can possibly could use... it turns out they don't have a stop button!
And this time of year the loons are molting, woodchucks are fattening up, and whitetail bucks are tearing away the velvet on their antlers by thrashing and rubbing them against shrubs and branches. During this time of seasonal change perhaps one of the most interesting characteristics is offered by the Jack-in-the-Pulpit plant who may be changing gender! (See )
