I took a ride to one of my favorite places, Parker River Wildlife Refuge last week. I just love showing my Senior Park Pass (check it out here) to the attendant and hearing “You’re good to go!”. On this visit, there were all kinds of swallows, a heron, egrets and an osprey. Parker River offers several free programs and tours every month that are well worth checking out. Today I went “Behind the Scenes at Great Bay Wildlife Reserve” in New Hampshire. Janet, the Parker River guide, drove us up there and all around the non-public areas of the park. We saw deer and turkeys, most of whom were more curious about us than we were! I recommend checking these programs out…did I mention FREE?
Egrets fly gracefully but land awkwardly.
