S6E15 - The Edge of Heart's Content, Part 1

Heart's Content Scenic Area is one of the few "old growth" forests in Pennsylvania.

Instead of going deep into the old growth though, today I’ll be exploring the picnic area and nearby interpretive trails. It may seem counterintuitive, but the greatest diversity of songbirds can be heard by sticking close to edge habitat — that is, habitats that represent border between two or more habitats. In this case, the open meadow of the picnic area, and the old growth of Heart’s Content.
