Melting Snow, Mermaids and Mourning Doves Welcome Spring

Spring is coming to Cape Cod.

You can feel it.

You can see it everywhere.

Gulls are sunbathing on the jetties…

Blog-ForestBeachLoop223AThe snow is melting along the shore and roadsides…

Blog-ForestBeachLoop223BBlog-ForestBeachLoop224Mermaids are starting to smile again…

Blog-ForestBeachLoop225Mourning doves are reappearing…

Blog-ForestBeachLoop230In pairs.

Blog-ForestBeachLoop229The light is changing in the marsh and in the channels…

Blog-ForestBeachLoop228Blog-Bird190The birds are singing different, brighter tunes.

Blog-ForestBeachLoop226Even if we DO get a little more snow, winter’s days are numbered now.

And as we crane our ears for the first sounds of redwings and ospreys in our beloved Chatham marshes we begin to say Farewell to snow and ice and – Blog-SallyGarden158Welcome Spring!
