Wondrous Westport

Definitely, the forsythia look fantastic. For sure, the cherry blossoms are spectacular.

But it’s not only flowers and trees that make a Westport spring so special.

Yesterday — near Indian River Green, just south of the train station on Saugatuck Avenue — alert “06880” reader Scott Singer spotted a couple of beautiful birds.

“A seemingly boring little pond by the side of the road has turned into an Audubon Society member’s dream (I am not one, but I own one of their books),” he writes.

“The amazing treasures of Westport are all around, if we simply take a moment to look closely.”

    Beautiful! Thanks for Sharing. To get the yellow warbler shot you must an incredible zoom on your camera. Drive by that all the time, I see white egrets, mallard ducks and sometimes a heron.

    Natural Beauty at its best. Thanks for sharing. Though it’s a little early, it’s been lovely to hear the birds chatting amongst themselves, each morning!
