This geocache is hidden in Plum Creek Park. It's a great park in which to enjoy a walk through the woods. Trails can be a bit sloppy at certain times of year or if there have been recent rains, so please wear appropriate footwear. Bug spray is recommended during the summer months-- you have been warned!
Park hours are from dawn to dusk. Please do not seek this geocache after dark. Pets are permitted, but must be on leash.
As I walked the trails to scout out locations for geocaches, the woods were quiet, but then suddenly I heard hundreds, if not thousands of birds. I wasn't able to see many of the birds high in the treetops, but their presence was unmistakable. I stood there and listened to their calls for nearly 15 minutes. Every so often, the woods would go silent for several seconds, but then they'd start up again.
i don't know what kind of birds they were, but I think they probably were starlings. Here's an interesting tidbit of information-- a flock of starlings flying in twisting, whirling formations is called a murmuration. You can see a cool video of this phenomenon online by clicking here.
You are looking for a lock n lock type container covered with camouflage tape. There is room for SWAG and trackables inside, but make sure the container can be closed securely before you leave. And please bring a pen with you to sign the log.
This geocache is placed with the permission of the Medina County Parks-- Permit # 130
