On Wednesday, July 13, 2022, the third segment of the Really Wild Wednesdays: Eager Ecological Engineers program will take place, when "Beaver Pond Wildlife: Part 3 - Early to Mid Summer" will be screened at Real Art Ways theater in Hartford, CT, at 7pm.
In Part 3, we'll see a red-shouldered hawk in action; an elusive American bittern; the underwater lives of many larval insects, including dragonflies, water scorpions, and more; nesting kingbirds on the hunt; diving kingfishers; and some pretty entertaining bullfrogs.
Speaking of bullfrogs, there will be rarely-observed scenes that may come as quite a surprise to some.
Of course, we'll see beavers at work too. Plus mink and otters.
A lot to see.
