This visually astounding book promises a walk in the woods (or a field or wetland) will never be the same again!. . . . Month by month through New England's seasons including full-color photographs. Begins with March and its early stirrings of life after a long, cold winter, and ends in February, as survival becomes the sole force of all plants and creatures. Follow Holland in sun, rain, and snow...along roadsides and riverbanks...above burrows and under treetop nesting sites. Includes hundreds of fascinating "Nature Notes," bite-size nuggets of fact-based information detail a species actions in a particular month-whether courting, breeding, singing, burrowing, migrating, or caching food. Includes lists of the amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, insects, and arachnids, and plants and fungi you might expect to see or hear from as the weeks go by. Each month includes specially chosen essays: Holland gets up close and personal with New England plant and animal life, illustrating their impact on the region and those who share it.
