Post 20

The understory here is made up of species of blueberry [pic 1], deerberry [Pic 2] and huckleberry [pic 3]. This habitat is called a heath like the Pitch Pine Heath barrens where the soil is acidic. Blueberry bushes fruit in early to mid-summer and are a delicious treat on a walk through the woods. Blueberries are also a favorite snack for black bears, white-tailed deer [pic 4] and blue birds [pic 5].
