Although Richmond Pond was open now compared to last time we were here, there were only a handful of Mute Swans. I've been wondering if the ducks are starting to work their way back north.
And just before the junction of Sodom Road and Charlotte White Road we spotted a Sandhill Crane flying on our left (west.) It appeared to be going down below some trees and possibly landing in one of the many farm fields in the area. When we got home we called up a map and saw that not only are their farm fields where we saw the crane but also marshy area around a small pond (Devol Pond) and it doesn't look like there are a lot of public roads in the area.
We headed back to Worcester satisfied that spring had come.....at least to the southern coast of MA.
