Field Ornithology Journal 5

Today is May 22, 2020. I went to the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary in Topsfield, MA, which was beautiful. I arrived around 7:07 AM and it was 62 degrees with a little sun peeking through. When I left around 12:05 PM, the temperature had risen to 79 and sunny! I believe I saw and heard the most species yet. Most of the trails were surrounded by deciduous and coniferous trees, but it was not very dense. There were a few points where I was walking along the edge of a swampy, pond. It seemed like a lot of the birds there were comfortable with humans because I had a couple just land right next to me, look at me, and just tilt their head like they were wondering what I was going to do next, which was pretty cool.
