Mass Audubon Wildlife group is celebrating its 100th year this year. Hence on the 100th day of this year, Ipswich wildlife sanctuary had arranged a natural trail for the day. Its the nesting season and Ipswich preserve is known for its blue birds, wood frogs and spotted salamanders.

I have recorded the chirping of birds. Take a look at the link below. Close your eyes, listen to nature and see if you can identify the birds.

Later we took a walk to the vernal pond where frogs and salamanders lay eggs. The picture below shows eggs of Wood Frogs. Yellow spotted salamanders and blue spotted salamanders lay their eggs in masses. Every time they can lay anywhere from 50 to 200 eggs.
