Norman Bird Sanctuary, Middletown, RI – 1/1/17

New Year’s Day brought a visit to the Norman Bird Sanctuary.

There are easy woodland trails, ponds, boardwalks, and educational programs of all types. Love this stone wall:img_9492 img_9493

Even on a frigid day, we could hear and occasionally see lots of birds in the trees, especially the ones that still have berries on them.

This grassy trail is bordered by a stone wall on the left, and an evergreen thicket on the right.img_9502

This is how thick the thicket is, with a hint of a trail just right for little kids to hide and explore:

The ocean isn’t far from the bird sanctuary, so we stopped at a beach on the way home.
