Mass Audubon Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary

I had a couple free hours while my son was at practice, so I drove over to Broadmoor in Natick and took an hour walk.  I forced myself to take a different route than my normal circuit and headed down Indian Brook Path....

Once I passed the private driveway, I entered an area with lots of bittersweet vines and consequently, lots of bird activity.  I saw American Robins, Yellow-Rumped Warblers, White-breasted Nuthatches, Cardinals, Cedar Waxwings, a Northern Flicker, and a Sparrow I have yet to identify but am hoping is a Savannah Sparrow.  Nice way to pass an hour!

It couldn't have been a more beautiful fall day here in New England.
