Field Ornithology Journal 1

Today is May 18, 2020. My birding site today was Crane Pond in Georgetown, MA. It was around 50 degrees with a slight drizzle when I first arrived around 6:45 AM and. As it got later in the day, the sun came out and it came to around 60 degrees. There were a couple nice trails along the pond that I followed until I left around noon. The area was a wetland and had a couple different ponds and swampy areas that were not attached to each other and had a lot of dead trees. The forest next to the pond was not very dense and had trees like Pines, Maples, White Birch, and Shagbark Hickory. I saw a couple Red-winged Blackbirds defending their territory from another species I was unable to identify, although might have been a Gray Catbird. I also observed that a lot of the birds seemed to gather closer to the water, as it got quieter the deeper I went into the woods.
