As spring unfurls, it’s been fun to see who is stopping by the Preserve for a visit and which resident species are getting active. As one might expect, it’s been busy out there.
This week, we’ve had a Great Egret (Ardea alba) visiting a feature we know as Wetland #1. It seems to be doing well in the grasses and shallow pools (puddles) found in the area.
A pair of Rock Squirrels (Otospermophilus variegatus) living in the Preserve have been spending much of their days in the woodshed behind our office.
