Caught in the act
The marsh is the ideal habitat for berry-bearing trees and shrubs, which of course attract many species of birds. It seems some don't wait until the berries ripen, as evidenced by many of the choke cherry sprigs being minus their berries. On Tuesday I noticed robins feeding in a serviceberry tree, plus this female purple finch. She flew into this gray birch when I walked by.
