Well, look at that, right across the North River. Finally, all those weeks of wondering just when the new wind turbine in Scituate would be up are over.
But the turbine’s not the only thing that popped up this week. Skunk cabbage poked out of the wet ground at the base of the hill at the North River Wildlife Sanctuary.
In those same woods we found some red-backed salamander eggs, yet another sign that spring is at least thinking about making an appearance.
Out on Duxbury Beach, the dunlin are still holding court, keeping the mud primarily to themselves.
They’re just lucky the resident snowy owl is more into the grasslands than the mud. Soon, though, neither will care too much what’s happening on the South Shore of Boston.
