Spring around the corner!

With the sun climbing higher in the sky, and days getting longer, spring is around the corner. In mid-late February, Red-tailed Hawks will nest and Red-winged Blackbirds will return and begin to sing. With the warmer weather, I intend to reactivate this blog with information about vernal pools, bird migration, spring wildflowers, tree and shrub identification and more.
