I have noticed that the crows seem to have become especially active around our neighborhood lately. I’m not sure what they are doing, though.
The black cottonwood trees are releasing their cotton now. I did not think they were native to the island, but according to the reference books I have, they are. So far, I have only seen them around Sheldon Jackson Campus where I assume they were planted. They are primarily associated with the mainland in Southeast; especially on rivers that originate in the interior.
