Especially today you can really feel spring in the air; what an appropriate way to start March!
The trees are budding, the ducks have been migrating through - a couple days ago we found a shoveler, ring-necked, and a couple of different flocks of pintail ducks! The spadix of the skunk cabbage is now clearly exposed, enticing the early flies and ants to wake and eat. All around you can find fresh green tufts of grass and flowers stretching from their winter's slumber.
Though it seems it's been such a long time - march forth - spring will be along soon.
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
