Mating season for the Bohemian waxwing starts just about now, according to Pam Monacelli who sent us this shot from Massena. 'Just before I snapped this shot the male had given the female a berry, which she held for a second or two then returned it, which is typical behavior when mating,' she said.View enlarged photo.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION:
The Department of Conservation is gathering public information regarding the potential creation of a year-round catch and release bass season. Currently the bass season runs from June 23 to November. St. Lawrence County passed a resolution opposing an extended catch and release season because of the potential impact it could have on bass populations.
Would you like to see a year-round catch and release bass season in St. Lawrence County?
Results will be posted Monday, April 27.
LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
St. Lawrence County lawmakers have scheduled a public hearing for a new law that will put more pressure on those who don’t pay their taxes on time by making it easier for the county to remove residents from properties it acquires from back taxes. The law would allow the county to take legal action on individuals occupying properties that have been lost due to delinquent taxes.
Do you agree with this proposed law?
