The snow cover is rapidly melting in Greater Moncton this week thanks to sunshine and above normal temperatures.

Birds are now finding it much easier to find food with more grass and insects reappearing for the season.

New Brunswick River Watch officials are concerned about flooding as waterways rise from melting snow.
