This morning was beautiful. As we prepared to lead a dip net field trip program at Bay Preserve, we enjoyed the cool air and blue skies. A resident pair of bald eagles called and glided overhead, giving us a thrill. Cardinals seemed to be everywhere, and so did a variety of woodpeckers. There were warblers flitting from branch to branch, iflashing feathered shades of green and yellow. A special treat was the large flock of 20 or so White Pelicans flying in loose formation. They have migrated here from places far north such as Montana, Wyoming and the Great Lakes. Their arrival is a sign of fall and approaching winter season! All of this AND a variety of crabs, shrimp and other marine animals from the "nursery" of the Bay. Nature's variety was dazzling today!
