For the Love of Marshes ðŸ’•

Perfect place to take in marsh life

I love all wetlands. Lately I’ve had easy access to many. The marsh is a wetland that is dominated by herbaceous rather than woody plants. They can often be found at the edges of lakes and streams, where they form a transition between the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. They are often dominated by grasses, rushes or reeds.

This marshland is home to many shore birds, long legged waders, various gulls and pelicans. During an extremely high tide I sat in the swing pictured and watched all the birds do their things. I did not hear the crawdads sing, but I did imagine it!

  1. Just enjoyed the backwaters of the Mississippi at Wyalusing State Park where the big river meets the Wisconsin River in Prairie du Chein, WI. We had a spot on a bluff overlooking the river and town and got to see some eagles, along with some other beautiful birds and heard lots of frogs and toads!
