Scout and I actually went to this one too and were extremely disappointed. It may’ve been the time of year, so it stays on the list for a repeat visit. Should be easy as it’s so close to Chez Tran. Update, 6/19/2011: We went on a whim toward sunset today. About two minutes out of the car we spotted a red-tailed hawk sitting quietly in the community gardens while a couple of house finches screamed at him. Then around a corner we came to a little pond where a heron was hunting minnows. Much different from the first visit.

High Ledges – Shelburne

✔ Ipswich River – Topsfield (version one, version two, version three)
This is an important one because it’s where Yen started to understand my fascination with birds.

Well, I’ve used the bathroom here several times. But I haven’t really explored other than that. I feel guilty saying this.
