Anyway, it was a great day at Broadmoor, a Mass Audubon Sanctuary in Natick. I also saw my first bluebird (which makes me sound like even more of an amateur than I am, I know). My son works there, and we hoped to see a woodcock, but didn't. Of course, the next evening he and a friend saw one taking off and landing not ten feet away from their picnic spot, and twice displaying in the air over their heads!! Pretty cool!
My husband and I are going back to Broadmoor tonight for a lecture on Solar Heating, which we are considering as a future enhancement for our house. (We have a lot of work to do to get the interior of the house in a habitable and healthy condition first, of course!) If I leave with a good understanding of the solar heating requirements and benefits, I'll post about it tomorrow.
