Today our nature walk group, let by Miles Hearn, visited Scarborough Bluffs. We walked an area entirely on top of the Bluffs. If you measure spring by the bird migration it comes and goes so quickly. Many of the songbirds which stop by on their way north have come and gone. There are still some migratory birds around as well as the ones which nest here.
While the number of migratory birds are shrinking, it’s a great time to look at wildflowers and other plants in the landscape. Today we saw Dame’s Rocket both in bud and in bloom.

Scarborough Bluffs is not the place to be if you can’t identify Poison Ivy, because there is lots of it in the area.
