Not sure if you want this info, but here it is:
 
There is a group of 17 turkeys that reside there and come to the feeders often, but we missed them.
 
Very interesting - saw "historical" trees - they keep them in plastic tubes until large.  Trees or seeds come from historical places. 
 
Very interesting - saw a 300 year old Basswood tree, rotted out but still alive. 
 
Saw lots of "galls" - with little holes in them where the birds pecked the insect larvae out.
