Spring is upon us!

It may not feel that way with the sub-freezing mornings and lingering snow on the ground, but some early migrants have already made their way into the state.

Piping Plovers are being seen along the coastline…a harbinger of spring for sure. I am sure that you are ready and excited about getting out and birding in the longer days and warmer weather.

Before you know it the spring bird banding stations across the state will be up and running…with an exclusive invitation to all you BIG YEAR participants to attend a banding session and really get a chance to bolster your bird list…stay tuned!
