Beaver Lake Nature Center

Today the Onondaga Historical Association had a picnic for its volunteers held at the Beaver Lake Nature Center.


It was very nice, except it rained cats and dogs, no kidding. A tour guide came to get us at 3:00 for a walk in the woods and the sun was out for a few minutes, but then it poured again, so I don’t have much in the way of outdoor photos, even though this is a really cool place. So here’s some indoor photos, even though I don’t like the thoughts of dead, stuffed birds and animals, they’re there so here’s some of them.

Belted Kingfisher. I would love to see one of these in real life!

Pileated Woodpecker. Nice to see up close to really see how big it is.

During the three seconds that it wasn’t raining, I captured some photos from their herb gardens.




I had intentions of taking many more photos to finally make a decent blog post, but the weather had other ideas!

    Great pictures. I too am not a fan of the stuffed birds in museums but you can learn so much from them.

    Really pretty flowers! I really think their egg display is neat. It looks like they had a really nice display.

    I’m sorry you didn’t get a chance to walk any of the trails. The lupine were beautiful a couple of weeks ago and I found some jack-in-the-pulpits. I’ve never looked over the displays inside, thanks for sharing them.

    The rain soaked flowers really are beautiful! Too bad the weather didn’t cooperate, but it still sounds like you had a great time.
