Morning at Hopkinton State Park

I was happy to discover the park is open from sunrise to sunset once again.  They must just open late during the summer season.  Guess the park ranger wants to sleep in during the summer!  In any case, I am glad to have the chance to be back for sunrise!  The light and colors and water all changed so much in the hour that I was there.  Once the sun came up, the mist formed above the water, too.

Dark-Eyed Junco

There was a nice flock of Dark-Eyed Juncos on the edge of the parking lot.  They were the only bird activity before the sun came up.

Once the sun came up and started warming the trees along the water, I saw 6 Ruby-Crowned Kinglets and 2 Golden-Crowned Kinglets.  Also a Downy Woodpecker, a flyover Double-Crested Cormorant, Blue Jays, a Northern Cardinal, a couple Brown Creepers, and Black-Capped Chickadees.
