"[This sunset was] shot from Idlewild, Shady Side, looking out over the West River from my friend's house in late April. Our family has been enjoying the Bay, its beauty and its critters for close to 40 years now. It is a national treasure—Washington, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Delaware need to wake up, stop playing politics, and save the Bay.
It is heartening to see the raptors and wading birds back. When I first came to the Bay, I never saw osprey, eagles, or herons. Now at least they are here, and we look forward to the ospreys' return each March. So, if we can come that far, we can continue to bring back such a wonderful estuary. Thanks to CBF for your help in fighting this battle."
