  • Snow trilliums bloom mid-March to early April. This trillium was photographed near Franklin, West Virginia, March 21.
  • Sharp-tailed Grouse are displaying on leks.
  • View the Sandhill Crane migration in the Platte River Valley in Nebraska.
  • Woodcocks are doing their courtship display along our driveway at Nature Friend.
  • Skunk cabbage blooms in late winter/early spring.
  • Vernal pool fairy shrimp hatch in winter and mature forty-one days later. Look for them in vernal pools (water in winter, dry in summer). A light at night attracts them. They grow one to two inches long. The males can be quite colorful. February-April is the time to look for them here in Virginia.
  • Mid-to-late March grizzlies come out of hibernation.
