109th Ipswich River Bird Survey
May 09, 2015

The 109th Annual Ipswich River canoe trip of the Essex County Ornithological Club was held this past Saturday (May 09, 2015). All in all, a great day to be on the water with a large assortment of spring migrants. The large number of Solitary Sandpipers was particularly unique.
