Spring is in the Air
At National Wildlife Refuges

Look for the return of neotropical birds and migratory waterfowl. Listen for the cheerful cacophony of spring peepers. Watch for the brief but brilliant display of spring ephemeral wildflowers – early woodland bloomers such as bloodroot, trout lily and trilliums.
