Ipswich Town Farm

Oct 1, 2017 7:45 AM - 11:30 AM
Protocol: Traveling
1.0 mile(s)
Comments: I joined Tom Young's BBC walk along with Linda Pivacek, Susan Hedman, Marj Watson, Daan Sandee, Noel Mann, and Dana Jewell. We spent the whole morning at the town farm, though the variety was not that great, esp. for sparrows and warblers. But we found a dickcissel and 2 Lincoln's sparrows, among others.
