Arcadia is Wild!!!

Bluebirds moving into their new digs...

I have been visiting Mass Audubon’s Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary for the past couple of weeks and wanted to share some of the incredible scenes!  If you get a chance take a drive to the sanctuary and witness spring at its most wild! (remember click on any image to enlarge it)  And while you’re at it, stop by the headquarters and join Mass Audubon!  They do such important work and your membership will help!
Vernal Pools are just singing with life.  When the wood frogs go to the vernal pools, you know its spring in New England:


A wood frog glow

The beginning of life of a salamander.

Then there is the great blue heron rookery.  I can watch these characters all day, squawking, preening, chasing each other, and of course showing off for their potential mates:

A tree blooming great blue herons!

A present of a leaf.

And then of course, there is the pair of bald eagles.  Once again preparing the nest:

Way high up!

Stretching its wings...

Keeping an eye on everything...

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.
