7.14.15 - Cape Cod Museum of Natural History - Tuesday Tweets - John Wing Trail
Brewster, MA

What a nice crowd we had this morning even though the forces of nature seemed to be working against us.  The tide was nearly high, so we didn't dare cross the marsh too far, because not everyone is prepared, or happy, to wade back!  We were able to have some nice osprey views, as flight lessons are just about in order.  That nest must be feeling awfully cramped these days!  We also were able to seek some shelter from the faucet-like showers.  One moment it was raining, 2 minutes later, it stopped...and we had the off & on rain factor for a bit.  I thought due to this we should take a look across 6A to see what we could see from the great viewing platform not far down the trail.  We were not disappointed.
