RI hike

RI hike, originally uploaded by hobbitsmama.

Went for a nice hike along Beach Pond in RI. (Then of course, we made a stop at Buttonwood Farm for ice cream.) We heard lots of thrushes as we walked the trail. We are all listening to bird cds to try and learn bird song .. so we were able to identify wood thrushes and hermit thrushes by song. We also heard a lot of red-eyed vireos as we walked but could not find them in the tree canopy. We did get to watch a kingbird fishing. Very beautiful hike .. hope to make it further next time.
