Spring is just around the Corner

Red-breasted merg

Well, here in Western Massachusetts, we’re seeing a couple of turkey vultures and the snow is just about gone. But it still feels like winter out there!  I took a trip to Cape Cod last weekend to attend the Cape Cod Natural History Conference sponsored by Wellfleet Mass Audubon at the four C’s.  I then took a morning to track down some early migrants!  Here is a red breasted merganser:

some buffleheads:

and a first for me a white winged scooter,  I love the eyes!

I wasn’t able to see any right whales off Race Point but rumor has it they have returned!  Stay tuned as spring starts to heat up!

About John Body

I live in Western Massachusetts, in the incredibly beautiful Connecticut River Valley. I've been hiking, kayaking, and tracking wildlife throughout the Valley with lots of photos and videos that people may like to see. Whenever I travel I also take my cameras just in case I see great scenery or wildlife. My passion is wildlife conservation so I try to attend wildlife workshops and land preservation events (Habitat, Habitat, Habitat!). When I get a chance, I videotape the experts, they're just so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope you enjoy my posts.
