Parker River, NWR, Plum Island, MA
We recently went birding at one of our favorite birding hotspots, Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, located on Plum Island near Newburyport, MA. The weather was perfect so we were happy campers. The refuge is on a barrier island and consists of 4,662 acres of superb wildlife habitat with salt marshes, impoundment pools, beaches, and vegetation like Bayberry and Beach Plums. There is a road down the center and you can stop and view birds in the marshes and pools. Above are some of our favorite images from the trip.
