Description

Where do the Chesapeake Bay's sea turtles come from in the summer, and where do they go in winter? Where do swans come from when they arrive in the region in November? Why do fishermen and sailors consistently see monarch butterflies out over the open bay in late summer? This book answers those questions and more. The fascinating natural history sketches in this book will enable those who love the Chesapeake to tune in to the bay's creatures and seasonal events. The fishing enthusiast will discover things that help him or her catch more bluefish or white perch; the bird watcher and the hiker will learn when to look for the appearance of the ospreys in the spring and the geese in the fall. The cruising sailor drinking morning coffee while anchored in a quiet cove will learn why a great blue heron stalks the shallows in summer; the canoeist will discover when to look for wild marsh flowers.
