The Coast Is Open For The Summer

April 14, 2008

The marshes have sprung to life over the past couple of weeks.  The summer residents are moving in and staking claim to feeding and breeding areas.  Tonight there was a spectacular dispaly put on by Yellow Legs and a variety of egrets as they fished for dinner, muscled out the competition and courted the opposite sex.
