April 2007

Spring has come to More Mesa.  Kites on the east side are nesting and we are expecting chicks soon.  Many hawks are also nesting on, and around, More Mesa. And although the Northern Harrier was seen on More Mesa on April 10, it should be leaving in the near future for its breeding territory.

While this year’s rains were not enough to produce an abundance of wildflowers ( there is a very good display of blue-eyed grass), the land is green and glorious … the cottonwoods are full, the willows have all their leaves and the grasses are green, lush and tall.  It is a great time to go out and enjoy the wonders of spring.
