Dot Bambach sends this report from Harris Neck NWR:
"This year’s wading bird colony in Woody Pond is at its peak and a sight to behold, with new chicks hatching every day. If you’ve never seen this spectacle or if you want to witness it once more, between now and May 31 is the time to visit.
Nesting species include wood storks, great egrets, snowy egrets, cattle egrets, tricolored herons, black-crowned night-herons, little blue herons, green herons, and anhingas. White ibis are abundant but haven’t started to nest yet and roseate spoonbills and black-necked stilts have recently been seen on the refuge".
Remember that some areas of the refuge are closed to the public during this important season. Please observe all signs and closings.
