Buntings Beach

Posted on Jan 3, 2017

Can you detect the beachgoers in this photo? There are several Snow Buntings (Plectrophenax nivalis) very well camouflaged against the grass, stones, and sand as seen on the shore last week. Unfortunately there is also plenty of garbage in the shot, and let’s make another New Year’s resolution to clean up our waterways and habitats like this one as much as possible. This pollution has to end one of these years! We at RTPI certainly like Talkin’ Trash, and our Project Wild America Youth Ambassadors plus the Bridgeport WildLife Guards stay engaged in cleaning up our waterways all summer long. How will you help out in 2017? Even just filling up a bag with garbage or talking to a few unthinking citizens can do wonders.
