Guided Walk, May 17, 2015

Perhaps, like many other Rhode Islanders, your first order of business on Saturday is Scott Turner's must-read column in the Providence Journal. The morning coffee is always better when taken with his wonderful observations about birds, the change of seasons and family walks along the sea shore or in some forgotten public park. Well, he's even better in person as two dozen visitors to Canonchet Farm discovered on Sunday, May 17, when they walked with Scott and his wife Karen along the trail on the west side of the farm. Scott's observations about the subtle changes in vegetation with slight changes in elevation, his stories about being a park ranger in New York and the shared discoveries of Jack-in-the-Pulpits were frequently interrupted by the calls from a wide variety of birds.

Here are some photos from the walk taken by Rosemary Smith (click a photo to enlarge it).

Note: Scott's column now appears in the Friday edition of the Providence Journal.
