[wisb] Red-tailed hawk nest / Skunk Cabbage - S. Kettle Moraine

An easily seen red-tailed hawk nest is near the entrance to the Ottawa Lake 
Campground, in the South Kettle Moraine State Forest.  It is on the right as 
you turn into the campground (and across the road from the Scuppernong Nature 
Trail area)  high in a tree.    A hawk  flew off and back into the nest, while 
I was there this morning. It would be a great place to take kids to view it, 
since it's so close to the road.  Best viewing is from across the street.
Another sign of spring:  6 stems of Skunk Cabbage are just peaking above ground 
at the springs off a side trail along the Scuppernong Nature Trail.
