Welcome to the mon@rch nature blog and I hope you join us in some of our nature adventures through the Allegany State Park area!
I am a naturalist, field biologist and nature photographer from the Western New York area. I have started exploring nature writing through this blog and it truly has been fun sharing my numerous adventures with everyone. Thanks to the many other authors that help me with my post and they will be sharing some of their nature explorations.
I have always had a latent interest in birds and photography and have been lucky enough to find time to explore these interests over the last few years. I am very thankful to the Cattaraugus County Bird Club for getting me started, sharing their wealth of knowledge and for their wonderful programs. And many thanks to Tom for letting me share some of my adventures and photos on the Monarch Nature Blog.
Thank you for taking the time visiting and commenting on this blog.
The only Witch Hazel tree, I know of, is along the field at Pfieffer Nature Center. Tried to grow one from seed once. Not successful..

Very nice, Tom. I don’t think I have ever seen a witch hazel tree in nature, although I am certainly familiar with the medicine shelf product.

A real bright beacon in harsh winter. I’m hoping my witch hazel tree will flower this year.
