It was a fabulous morning on the marsh today, with enough shorebirds to test our skills, and sunshine to bring out the songbirds, too. Vaux’s Swifts kept us company wherever we wandered. The days may be getting shorter, and the temperature cooler, but there are always birds to see on the marsh. Next month, we’ll move to our winter start time of 10:00 AM. October starts on a Saturday, so mark you calendar now for our next Friends of Ladd Marsh, First Saturday Bird Walk on October 1, leaving Headquarters at 10:00 AM. Until then, Good Birding!
