Some may think that there isn’t much to see in a wetland during the summer. With spring migration long since passed and several sultry months to go before the activity of fall migration begins, what is there to look at and enjoy in a wetland? It is a good question.
Last week the ice thawed out and temperatures rose briefly to tease us about the coming of spring. With that reminder, I thought I’d touch on another public use at Duck Creek that should be heating up.
Freezing temperatures are for the birds; at least they can migrate south if they feel like it. Other critters that can’t spread their wings are not as fortunate and have to hunker down and tough out winter’s chill.
