Laughing Brook May 6

I went out to Laughing Brook last Friday for a quick trip. It was cloudy but no threat of rain on radar. Dwarf ginseng and large-flowered bellwort were out. There was a chipping sparrow and a bluebird in the parking lot field but no activity near the nest boxes. Over by the pond there was a red-bellied woodpecker and a Louisiana  waterthrush singing. Later I heard an ovenbird as I headed up to the upper swamp. There was one marsh marigold up there. Sadly, my picture of the marsh marigold looks to be the last picture I will take with my Nikon Coolpix point and shoot. After that shot, the lens extends and retracts a few times and the camera refuses to turn on.
