Thanks for posting this, vaericks :-)
It’s wonderful when the reappearance of wildlife signals the return of spring. I always keep an eye open for the first swallows and house martins here on the islands – zooming along about two feet above the surface of the lanes and beaches, hoovering up insects with amazing speed.

Sandhill Cranes are in trouble and need our help!
One of the Sandhill Cranes nesting grounds could soon become too noisy (due to pipeline construction) for these rare birds to feel comfy using the area.
And their survival as a species could be threatened, if the proposed pipeline for petrochemical transport gets approved.
Petrochemicals are currently planned to go thru their nesting area via pipeline.
Petrochemical pipelines have a tendency to leak. Leaks can be ruinous to native habitat. Current example of the risk of pipelines to wildlife habitat is the recent oil pipeline rupture under Montana’s Yellowstone River. A big spill, making a mess of at least 15 miles of habitat along the riverbanks so far, may have badly damaged a farm in the region too.
For more info about that Yellowstone spill, or for a link with more info about the proposed new pipeline that is a problem for Sandhill Cranes, PM me. I thought of putting the links here at first, but then decided not to, just in case anyone finds the topic too controversial.
Don’t want to ruffle anyones feathers.

Hi there! You're reading a conversation in the Wildlife in the Garden (Worldwide) group on Folia.
There are some lovely journal entries about the wildlife that shares our gardens with us which prompted me to create this group where we can share our garden wildlife with other MyFolia members.
