Birds, Brewster Gardens and...Banksy?

Nelson Beach, Plymouth
A few scenes from the weekend in Plymouth any image to see it bigger.

B is for Birding~
The Audubon Society's John Galluzzo (Adult Education Coordinator, South Shore Sanctuaries) led a bird walk along the rail trail/bike path near Nelson Beach on Saturday, 9.10. He pointed out an osprey nest (and its inhabitant), cormorants, swans, plovers and many more feathered creatures.

These walks are great whether you're a birder or someone (like me) who just loves to walk in nature.

John will lead a couple of other free Plymouth bird walks later in the Winter, and I highly recommend them. You need to register by calling the society (9AM - 4PM, M - F): 781.837.9400

There are swans behind the greenery

A walk in Brewster Park is always a good thing! The Town Brook, little water falls, jewel weed, peace...

The Old North Street
Curiosity Shop
And then there's the Saturday Farmers Market on the courthouse lawn and a walk down North Street to see Ric Cone and his Old North St. Curiosity Shop.

And...could it be...Banksy?

"Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter.
His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine irreverent dark humour with graffiti done in a distinctive stencilling technique. Such artistic works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world." (more from wikipedia).

There's always much more to do and see than there is time to do it~
