Bald Eagle on Long Island?
While jogging around Hempstead Lake State Park in Rockville Center this past weekend, I saw a Bald Eagle perched on a dead tree in the Northernmost portion of the lake. Not believing my own eyes I returned a half hour later, but no bird. However, im not the first, it was apparently reported to the Audubon Society in April 2012. I would have never have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes. Go figure!

Field Guide to Virginia Salt and Brackish Marsh plants
I recently stumbled upon the The Virginia Institute of Marine Science's helpful field guide to Virginia Salt and Brackish Marsh Plants. Despite only being a few pages, its a quick start on identifying the most common plants in Virginia’s tidal salt marshes, based on the tidal zone. The color coding of each zone (Low Marsh, Salt Meadow, Salt Panne, Upland Bank) and the illustration of each plants most distinctive feature of each plant makes identification much easier, and kid friendly. All of the illustrations in this brochure are by Abigail Rorer from the "Field Guide to Coastal Wetland Plants of the Southeastern United States" by Ralph Tiner.
