It wasn’t all snails at McKinney Falls State Park on March 13th. I also came across this nest (presumably a bird’s) in a small tree. The nest was supported by two kinds of vines: greenbrier, Smilax bona-nox, and mustang grape, Vitis mustangensis. Note also the spent pod of a milkweed vine, likely Matelea reticulata, in the upper left.
