Wildlife In Season

Most birds are nesting now. Keep an eye out for mama osprey and eagles which can be seen along our bay areas. Piping plover and sea turtle nesting season begins along some beaches and sandy islands. Avoid getting close to marked nesting areas. Butterflies are all around including the black swallow tail. More and more turtles can be seen around area ponds and ditches. Watch out to avoid mowing over them in your yard.

May is a great time to start looking for herps - frogs, slamanders, turtles, lizards, and snakes. Make sure you send pictures or descriptions of your finds to the Maryland Herp Atlas.
