Saltmarsh sparrows in here.. We took the Railroad trail. Hi Luke!A beautiful but invasive plant.Paulownia tomentosa Thanks for the link Laura! Does anyone know who lives in this? Throughout the Railroad trail we saw holes with what looked like white curled up paper beside them. Scott told us there is a problem with the raccoons digging up the eggs of the endangered Diamondback Terrapin turtles. For some reason the raccoon left this egg…need some Id help..I know Sicksta Lori is a pro at Id..anyone else? I thought this grass was sweet..
Where oh where is the Marsh Wren?
