Brompton Ride to Newburyport

A couple of weekends ago, I carried my Brompton on the 9:30 AM Commuter Rail train from Boston to Newburyport, Massachusetts.  From there I rode out to the Parker River Wildlife Refuge on Plum Island.  '

The Parker River NWR is a prime viewing spot to see migrating birds.  While I didn't see anything exotic like Piping Plovers (the rare bird this refuge is known for), I did see lots of egrets, double-crested cormorants, and thousands upon thousands of little tree swallows.

It was a beautiful ride ... and you can experience it too by watching my GoPro video!
