Hawthorne Hill Nature Center
Unfortunately, the Nature Center is not open on Sundays. However before, the visibility of bird homes and also bird feeders all about made it simple for us to spot birds ideal away. The front of the Nature Center is most likely alive through butterflies, birds and also even more in the summer once the prairie plants are in complete bloom. The trails are still open, so excellent for a Sunday walk.

Behind the Nature Center is a pond via a small walkmethod. This morning, we did not view as well many kind of birds around the pond. However before, I spotted a hawk so I am sure that is why!

The keep does have a informational placards alengthy the hike. The hike itself is reasonably short however pleasant. The keep abuts versus a residential area however when the leaves come in, I do not think that you will certainly really notice it. Throughout our walk, we experienced fairly a couple of birds even though it is still February! The highlight---seeing a woodpecker!
