Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center

Rising above the salt marsh is a wooded island called a hummock. Here, loblolly pine, bayberry, and holly take root in the drier soil and protect wildlife from the challenging conditions of the open marsh.

Who takes shelter in the hummock? *Deer and foxes hid in the undergrowth. *Red-bellied woodpeckers and northern flickers nest in the pines. *Bald eagles roost on high branches.
