Niagara Falls nature is abundant and varied. Despite the numerous humans in the summer time, both flowers and birds enjoy the wet landscape.
These tall brownish red flowers and tall yellow flowers were growing on the steep cliff on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, near our hotel.
I’m guessing that these tall yellow flowers I photographed at Fort George by Niagara-On-The-Lake are goldenrod.
Does this pale purple flower from the side of the road look like a scraggly aster?
When we took a trip to the U.S. side of the falls, I found a sign all about Niagara Falls nature: Niagara Gorge Ecology is the header. On that sign are the following: Bonaparte’s gulls, Kalm’s St. John’s wort (yellow flower), common merganser duck, northern white cedar, slender blazing star, ninebark shrub, Baltimore oriole and bald eagle.
These lovely slender pale pink flowers (might be Joe-Pye weed) grow right by the American Falls.
Tall purple flowers (loosestrife?) scattered in between the rocks are a pretty sight.
Flowers and plants grow on top of rocks, right by the crashing, noisy falls.
Are these gulls “Bonaparte gulls”? If so, they are one of 19 species of gulls seen at Niagara Falls in the winter.
Found these flowers with burrs (burdock?) on the Canadian side.
