A Great Meadows Saturday

You need to take advantage of sunny days. Today, I jumped out of bed at 5:30 and rushed up to Great Meadows in Concord.

One goal: to take a decent photo of a marsh wren. I'm getting there. This one was singing out in the open for a while this morning.

Great Blue Herons in great abundance. I even got to see a little territoriality battle (though I failed to get the tremendous echoing squawking on record).

The highlight of the day was a visit by an osprey family, three of them--junior peeping away.

Also, cedar waxwings. At least twice one of the young'uns looked like it was about to land on my hat.
