Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary - July 04, 2011

A stop at the Sanctuary this July 4th found dozens of birds feeding in the Mulberry Tree that abuts the parking lot. The Cedar Waxwing below was able to get this berry down  after a bit of a struggle.


The Tree Swallows are almost done nesting for the season. This is also in the field next to the parking lot.
