I took a drive over to the Ipswich River with my gear to get some fresh air and sunshine on Sunday. I found these exquisite tiny violets.
I could hear Green-throated Warblers as I walked up the trail. A Black-and-white warbler popped out briefly. Then my hart skipped a beat. It’s a male Blue-winged Warbler!
A few minutes later, a female appeared in the brush.
After the warbler party left, I went up the trail to a meadow. On the return, I found another Blue-winged Warbler in a beech tree.
