Winter food

The team at LAMRAC (Marais de la Rivière aux Cerises) were hard at work when I visited this week, trying to break the accumulated ice before the next cold spell sets in. The rain made an impenetrable layer of ice on flat surfaces that has been difficult to remove except by using brute force.

Pictured is Prunus serotina (black cherry), a pioneer species that it is among the first to grow in disturbed habitat with lots of light such as forest edges or abandoned fields. The red berries stand out in the winter on the grey backdrop. I am surprised the birds haven’t got to them all yet.
