Monarch Caterpillar 82 viewsA monarch caterpillar devours a milkweed leaf in a small Mattapoisett meadow. Having probably been the last of the four generations of monarchs born since the start of the spring migration back to Mattapoisett (monarchs only enjoy a butterfly existence for two to six weeks), this caterpillar will undergo metamorphosis and likely be one of those that will soon head south to Mexico, flying two miles high in the sky.

Cairns81 viewsCairns have started cropping up again along the beach at the Nasketucket Bay State Reservation. The stacks of balanced rocks stand in and along the water’s edge, leaving behind the message to all others who pass, “I was here.” Photo by Jean PerryJul 20, 2016

Operation Osprey120 viewsThey’re back! We have been regularly checking the osprey nest platform at Brainard Marsh, a Sippican Lands Trust property in Marion, for the return of our osprey friends after the long spring migration back to Buzzards Bay. An osprey pair will mate for life and return to their regular nesting area after the two-week 2,700 mile journey from South America back to coastal Massachusetts. Apr 13, 2016
Snow Flowers124 viewsThese sad-sallow daffodils in front of the Rochester Town Hall look pretty much like how we all felt Sunday morning when we woke up and looked out the window. The region experienced a strange series of snow squalls coupled with high winds on April 3, followed by a late spring snow and slush storm on Monday that manifested into unalloyed New England hell.

Clover Cover121 viewsJean Perry set out this week to find a four-leaf clover for the St. Patrick’s Day edition, certain that she would eventually find one. Perry has lost count of how many four-leaf clovers she has found in her life because it seems everywhere she looks, she finds one, or two, or three… This four-leaf clover was found close to the bike path in Mattapoisett near Brandt Island Road.
