I don’t know how I never went to the mud flats at the Maplewood Conservation Area before. It’s a five minute drive from where we live and it is peaceful and alive with a host of different birds. I’m no birder, but we managed to see a few. What we didn’t see we certainly heard, though. I don’t have a great camera for taking pictures of birds unfortunately, but I snapped a couple pictures of some interesting flowers. My favorite flower find was this little pink pine flower. I didn’t even know pine trees flowered!:D Does anyone know what kind of pine tree this is? I looked it up and the closest I got was a Shore Pine, but it doesn’t look quite right…..
