In Season This Month

Wildlife


Assateague mares start to show off recently born foals. The northern spring migration is well underway by the end of April. Song birds are arriving. Waterfowl and raptors are moving on. A few transient green wing teal are still in the area as of the beginning of the month. Animals also begin to shake of their winter doldrums and are sometimes more visible. Deer, unafraid with hunting season over can also be seen more frequently. In the water, look for muskrats and otters. Baby terrapins are also making an appearance. Watch for them in your lawn when mowing for the first time this spring.
