Scott and I took a walk today at the Rock Island Trail Prairie Nature Preserve north of Princeville, Illinois. It is a long narrow patch of prairie along what used to be the Rock Island Rail Road. We saw wildflowers and other emerging prairie plants, some of which I have posted photographs on this page. We also saw many different species of birds, which I was not able to photograph: Red-winged Blackbird, Mourning Dove, Dickcissel, Northern Cardinal, Easter Blubird, Eastern Kingbird, Mocking Bird, and American Goldfinch.
