Description The autumn is full of chatter as the woodland birds bustle about the trees in the last colorful days before winter. Here a black capped chickadee sits briefly among the orange, red and gold leaves of a highbush blueberry bush.There are many varieties of blueberry bushes in the forest. The high bush blueberry are the tallest, often reaching eight feet or taller. The birds and squirrels like the small, hard berries which sometimes persist on the bushes well into the fall.
