"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky

Ed, ENTS-

This is a good video explaining some winter ID tips, but for me examining the leaf litter is most important if one is unsure of what the tree is---twig characteristics are great to use, but oftentimes twigs are inaccessible---for me tree ID is more of a Gestalt thing.
