Just about a mile from the profunda population discovered at Van Buren this past fall. F. americana and pensylvanica both present in this wetland, a few individuals with profunda-suggestive bark. Small number of samaras obtained by digging under the snow- nothing large enough for a definitive ID between pensylvanica and profunda, but large calyxes and robust overall.

Jack Pine (Pinus banksiana)

Description

Help me! I’m not sure what to make of this single tree who I couldn’t get close to. Partly I’m puzzled because this pine grows on the edge of a swampy/fenny little island, and I was using my binoculars from shore. Needles definitely in fascicles and those appear to be in 2’s and twisted and they seem distinctively short, at 1 to at most 2 inches. All cones on the tree are in 2s and 3s a few feet back from the tips, so probably a few years old and pointing forward. There is a pasture history here on the mainland (old barbwire), there are only a handful of scattered invasive plants and the usual hayfield species, but no other pines except white pine found in region. The tree is still small, but the trunks and limbs don’t have the faintest but of red. Pinus banksiana seems pretty unlikely for Vermont, but there can’t seem to come up with anything else. This doesn’t seem to match P. sylvestris well...

This appears to be a small, isolated relict stand of these yellow pines, and may be in the process of winking out, although no obvious mortality or disease was noted.

This male mountain lion - a migrant from South Dakota - was infamously struck 41-miles east of Greenwich, CT. This was the first verifiable documentation of a cougar in Connecticut since the 1890s. The attributed location and time is from where it was struck by a car. There is no breeding population of cougars in New England, though they historically occupied every continental US state. More information on the "Connecticut Mountain Lion" can be found below.

@bobbyfingers, this is one you might appreciate: I made a terrible first impression on this lady by opening my front door two inches and smacking her in the head with it. Presumably, this is a female looking to make a scrape to lay eggs and not a door-to-door saleswoman selling armor. Unfortunately, she chose the tumbling escape route off the side of the front deck and not the stairs I assume she came up in the first place. She then took a second tumble from the bed she landed in down to the paved path below her. She showed no signs of damage and seemed unfazed by what looked like a serious tumble. We were both a bit in shock but thankfully, we both left the scene with digits intact. I'm very interested to hear if anyone else has had such an experience? I've had plenty of garden encounters but not a snapper climbing 5 steps and trying to dig into the front door. Very cool.
