“When you go outside to enjoy the crispness of this first week of
November see if you find:
Witch Hazel blooming
Some Water Striders, Orb Weavers (spiders) and Crickets around. Some
cricket call heard mid-morning
I’ve seen some Marbled Orbweavers still hanging on.
Some Box Turtle and salamander sightings
Great Horned Owls calling in late afternoon and on cloudy days
Mammals preparing for winter
The above list is from The Piedmont Almanac – The Central Region: A
Guide to the Natural World by Dave Cook.
Some of the persimmons are tasting good. Might be a good time to find
Get outside! The leaf color around here right now is stunning!
Have fun outside!”
