In Season This Month

Wildlife


Thistles and other flowers past their blooming prime along roadsides and field edges provide great feeding and therefore viewing of finches, Eastern king birds, and other song birds. In late August through the month of September migrating Neotropical songbirds pass through the region. Visit http://birdcast.info/forecasts/ for regular birding forecast updates. Along the bays plovers and skimmers are always fun to watch. Watch for bottle nose dolphins playing just beyond the ocean surf while brown pelicans patrol the air space above them. And now is also a great time to see spice bush swallowtails, buckeyes, black swallow tail, monarch, and zebra butterflies and dragon flies.

Hurricane season heats up particularly at the end of the month. After a big blow this is a good time to go shelling along area beaches.
