Along the shore of the Sakonnet River is where this Audubon property is. It is a short hike with well marked and well maintained paths. There is also an abundance of birds here. Starting from the parking area I followed the yellow trail into the property. I then turned left and followed the blue trail and its loop. There is a bridge crossing here where I snapped a photo of the salt marsh. After completing the blue loop I made my way back to the yellow trail and headed for the yellow loop. I took a quick peek at the field before making my way to the shore near the northern end of the property where I came across several fiddler crabs. In the distance there was an egret. Following the red trail back to the parking area I came across an area of ledge. This is where most of the birds were. The red trail ended at the parking area. After this hike I decided to head to Fogland Marsh (which is relatively close) to do some additional walking.
