Wildlife In Season

In March area fields awaiting spring planting are in full purple bloom with henbit. Crocus and daffodils of long past gardens bloom in unexpected wild places. The finches are starting to get their vibrant colors back. Killdeer are beginning to mark their nesting territory. Along the bays and marshes look for shore birds like yellow legs, ruddy turnstones, avocets, rails, and ibis. Snow Geese are starting to leave for parts north but by the end of the month neotropical warblers start to make an appearance. Also as the weather warms, spring peepers and tree frogs can be heard every evening, letting us know that spring is here to stay.

March often brings heavy weather in the form of Nor'easters. After one of these three day blows head to area beaches for good shelling.
