Photo Challenge: Acadia: May 20

The Jesup Path in Acadia National Park traverses through a unique ecosystem –  incorporating forest,  wetland and meadow habitats all in one small area.  Much of the path is comprised of hemlock and birch forest and a short section includes a boardwalk through the wetland area.  I strolled along the boardwalk late afternoon – looking for birds and trying to capture my “photo of the day.”

It’s a great birding destination.  Last year I often observed Barred Owls in the early evening.  Today, I was able to spot some downy woodpeckers, a magnolia warbler and an oven bird.  I’m hoping to improve my birding skills this summer – off to a good start! 🙂
