Some last sightings of the season

As I said in my recent unscientific forecast, the turtle season is over. Well, almost. It turns out that there’s still at least a little activity even here. Bob Burgess reported in that he’d rescued one from the road two weeks ago, and prior to that a neighbor in Dover Falls let Patti O’dell know about a box turtle that had passed away in the neighbor’s yard after a couple of days of immobility. Turtles in the Piedmont are also still stirring, if the Chattahoochee Nature Center Wildlife Department reports are any gauge. Nevertheless, as temperatures falls, these guys will go to their forms for the winter nap. Please let me know if you happen to see one any time!
