CONCORD, NH – The silhouette of a great blue heron in flight is awe-inspiring and conjures thoughts of what prehistoric birds may have looked like. In the latest issue of the New Hampshire Wildlife Journal magazine (March/April 2019) you will meet these fascinating birds and learn more about their habitat and often communal lives within a colony. Also in this issue, Mark Beauchesne reflects on a lifetime of foraging for wild edibles and shares his knowledge of where to find the best meals while exploring the Granite State’s woodlands.

You’ll also read about the delicate balance required to manage New Hampshire’s landlocked salmon fishery. Author Andrew Schafermeyer explores the relationship between these iconic fish, their food, and the angler.

Regular columns include On the Nature Trail where we encounter the striped skunk, a crafty omnivore that happens to be one of the primary predators of bees and wasps. Our popular Warden’s Watch column follows the activities of Conservation Officers in the field.
