Re: [CrexMeadowsNatureLovers] Migrants Moving In
- I went out for a bit Saturday afternoon - we have a few pairs of returning cranes, many geese, swans, and lots of immature bald eagles. A couple of pairs of mature eagles have chosen their nesting sites and it appears they may have laid eggs.
The snow is a setback - we got 6-8 inches in this area, but it will help fill the flowages up as it melts. And it will feed the roots of the many wildflowers I am waiting to see. I expect the Pasqueflowers on Reigel ridge to appear any time now. Will look for them this week.
Remember - we are open weekends now, so please stop in if you are in the area!
I wish you many happy adventures!
