Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge

Took a walk at 8AM this morning in Concord at Great Meadows, hoping for some wildlife sightings worthy of a picture.  I was not disappointed.  It was hot, hot, hot and I dressed in long pants and long sleeves expecting bugs to be a problem.  There really weren't any bugs!

This was the first time I walked on the causeway and found Canada geese along the trail, in groups.  They hissed nastily as I passed, and it really got my heart rate up!  Other people seemed more used to them, or at least confident that they were not "attack" geese!

I saw more Great Blue Heron here today than I have ever seen in one outing.  They are really a fun bird to watch!  Good fishing!

 and fly!

I heard a rustling in the leaves just as I was nearing the parking lot.   I stopped to check it out and found this adorable little bunny.
