Frankfurt Flora and Fauna

 For a Girl Scouts project one year, Clarissa and her troop made posters and shared a pdf of the flora and fauna around the housing compound and the duck pond. Here's some things they saw (and hopefully everything was properly IDed): 

Leatherleaf Viburnum (Viburnum rhytidophyllum)

Mallard (Male) - (Anas platyrhynchos)

Mallard (Female) - (Anas platyrhynchos)

Feral Pigeon - (Columba livia domestica)

Carrion Crow - (Corvus corone)

Common Daisy - (Bellis perennis)

Winter Aconite - (Eranthis hyemalis)

Great Cormorant - (Phalacrocorax carbo)

Common Moorhen - (Gallinula chloropus)

Egyptian Goose - (Alopochen aegyptiaca)

European Firebug - (Pyrrhocoris apterus)

Eurasian Red Squirrel - (Sciurus vulgaris)

Snowdrop Anemone (also called Madonna anemone) - (Anemonoides sylvestris)

Norway Maple - (Acer platanoides)

Deer Mushroom - (Pluteus cervinus)

Oregon Grape - (Berberis aquifolium)

You will have to come visit us and check out the poster, if you want to know exactly where things were spotted and three fun facts about each!
