Neotropical migrants are returning, spring edibles are emerging, and I'm taking time to celebrate. I'm suspending my normal blog schedule through the end of May. (I'll continue to share some of my photos on Flickr.)
While I'm enjoying spring, check out my New England Wild Edibles Monthly Guide or browse my blog's complete index. If you'd like to sharpen your naturalist skills, consider attending one of my walks or inquiring about a customized workshop.
I'll leave you with this photo of a Palm Warbler and some words on warblers.
"What wood warblers lack in size they more than compensate for with the diversity of their plumage, feeding techniques, and song patterns and pitches. To many birders, spring -- when both the songs and bright plumage of male warblers are very much in evidence -- is synonymous with the arrival of these 'butterflies of the bird world.'"
