I have not been over to the Green River Bridge since they began working on it last year. This is a photo from last September.
This is a photo from late September 2013.

If you go to the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, be sure to bring some sunflower seeds with you. I was visited by Black-capped Chickadees and a Tufted Titmouse. The White-breasted Nuthatches seemed interested, but wouldn’t come down.

It doesn’t get much better than this. What the beaver is snacking upon is Buckthorn which is an invasive species in our New England woods. I’ve never seen signs of anything eating it, other than the birds eating the berries. Buckthorn grows under the forest canopy and disrupts the natural vegetation. It is just difficult to eradicate.
But this isn’t a post about buckthorn, it’s about the beaver!

Yesterday I showed you something rather fun. Today I will not be so silly. This is the inside of Christ’s Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Philly is a very important city in the history of the United States. It was here that our Founding Fathers tried to iron out our differences with The Crown, and ultimately unable to preserve their rights as British subjects, made the decision to sever political ties.
It was in this church that George Washington and Ben Franklin worshiped.
This was George Washington’s presidential pew. Yes, I actually sat here just to say that I sat where George Washington sat. Later, John Adams was allowed the use of this pew when he became the second president of the United States.
And this was the Franklin’s Family pew.

We took a trip to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a group of friends and visited some really great and important historical places. In my life, I have walked in the footsteps of giants, wondering if I actually ever stood where they were. This time, I have absolutely no doubt that I was standing where Ben Franklin stood…or sat. Yes this is Ben’s privy pit. I’ll never look at a 100 dollar bill in the same way…if I ever get my hands on one again.

Good by, August. Hello September. It is time for the fall migrations. Here is a fall Blue-winged Warbler that I spotted in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
In the same warbler party was this Magnolia Warbler.
Be sure to visit Wild Bird Wednesday this week!
