Today when I arrived at LFK headquarters on the Noyo River, I was struck by how much things had changed in less than 2 weeks. The alders are budding casting a spring green hue on everything and creating a dramatic contrast with the dark green coniferous fir and pine trees.
As I walked out on to the deck, I saw that we still have a few lingering buffleheads. They are so fun to watch as they dive under the water to feed and bob back up.
The song birds are singing to attract mates and establish territories. While the osprey who mate for life, are already starting on their spring cleaning and remodeling their nests.
