Wood Ducks and Mallards have returned and there was also a pair of Blue-winged Teals on the pond yesterday. And Great Blue Heron today.
Beautiful warm day yesterday...beautiful cold day today...ah Spring!
P.S. Finally! I found a new blooming wildflower today. It was tightly closed this morning, but is now open all over the lawn in front of the nature center.
This tiny flower is aptly named Small-flowered Bitter Cress

Please Note: We do have a new feature on the blog, at the top of the page you will notice a 'Bird Sightings' and 'Wildflower Bloom List.' We will update these throughout the season as more species return to the preserve!
