The other day I took a hike through a salt marsh and while I found many birds, I was most excited by the Saltmarsh Sparrows and Seaside Sparrows that I found. They live in these environments among the reeds. Birding in these environments is such a joy to behold and witness as thousands of different niches are being filled and exploited by thousands of different animals and species. Besides the Saltmarsh Sparrow, the other highlight was seeing a young Willet, Willetlet(?), bouncing around the marsh. I hope to go back soon and check in on these birds and their habitat. Meanwhile, there are lots of salt marshes to check out and I insist you go out and see some!
