By Joanna Burger
Come for a trip alongside the Jersey shore with naturalist and ecologist Joanna Burger! In those deeply felt, heavily saw own essays, Burger invokes the intertwined lives of naturalist and wild creatures on the ever-changing fringe of ocean and land. notice along with her the fragile mating dances of fiddler crabs, the risks to piping plovers, the swarming of fish groups into the bays and estuaries, the trilling notes of Fowler's toads, and the sophisticated green-grays of salt marshes.
Joanna Burger is aware the shore via all its seasons--the first second of spring whilst the herring gulls arrive on ice-gouged salt marshes, the tip of spring whilst the nice flocks of shorebirds come to feed on horseshoe crab eggs at Cape may perhaps, the summer time while the peregrine hunts its prey, the autumn whilst the migrations of hawks and monarch butterflies allure watchers from world wide, and the depths of wintry weather whilst a lone snowy owl sweeps throughout snow-covered dunes and frozen bay.
This is a e-book that any one who loves the Jersey shore will cherish! and since such a lot of of those incredible creatures dwell all alongside the Atlantic coast, it will likely be of equivalent curiosity to beach-lovers, naturalists, bird-watchers, fishermen, and coastal and marine scientists from North Carolina to Maine.
