American Avocets (Recurvirostra americana) 18 inches (46 cm) in winter plumage...
and Great Blue Herons (Ardea herodias) 46 inches (117cm)...
We saw a wide variety of ducks, also.
We didn't see the snow geese on the ponds but the marshes and woods were beautiful.
We went out of the park for lunch and when we returned, all of us attempted a walk on the trail to Parson Point. The Green Briar crowding into the trail forced Tom on his scooter to turn back. Bruce and I pressed on.
Parson Point is a mud flat. The mud was firm enough to walk on but Tom's scooter would have sunk in it.
And then there was the last part of the trail barely wide enough for person to squeeze through. This was beyond the Green Briar.
On the return trip, I stopped to see if I could still sit on a tree limb. Notice the spreading roots.
There was a remnant of World War II along the trail.
