In Season This Month

Wildlife


Our fall colors may not as well noted as those in the mountain regions to our west and north, but vibrant red and orange leaves mixed with green pines along golden marshes are alive with crimson Virginia Glasswort plant (also locally called chicken’s feet) and the Lady’s Thumb which sport pink buds with bright red stems. Look for the usual birds like blue heron, gulls, and terns. In woods and along field keep your eyes peeled for wild turkey. Warblers passing through the area on their way south can still be seen in local woods.
