Ostrich Fern

Matteuccia struthiopteris


A fiddle head has a long stem with a curvy green swirl at the top. A fiddle head is also a fuel for kids. The fiddle head also known as an ostrich fern is the official plant of New Brunswick!


Fiddle heads can be found some of the strangest places like in woods or close to lakes or behind your house by a stream.


I found it in the woods looking for wild life at (NB) New Maryland Elementary School.
