Streamside hardwoods, many of which are maple, provide good habitat for emerging aquatic insects. Not too far from this spot I timed the flights of emerging sulphur mayflies during a June evening. It took mayflies about 40 seconds to reach the relative safety of streamside foliage. Cedar Waxwings were actively flying across stream, catching mayflies in flight. Many mayflies made it to the trees, many made good meals.
