Off to Cape May

Well, I know that I said I live in Western Massachusetts, so you’d expect a lot of wildlife from there but I’ve been traveling this summer so here are some pics and video of an incredible Nature Conservancy preserve in Cape May.  They’ve rehabilitated a phragmites wetland into a highly productive catty nine tail wetland plus they’ve roped off much of the shoreline for shore birds.  Yesterday I tagged along with an Audubon Society hike, it was pretty foggy but the leader was great.  Today, my mother and I hiked the mile path and saw American oystercatchers (Haematopus palliatus), a Halloween pennant dragon fly (Celithemis eponina) terns, and even a deer!

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.
