Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 12 October 2017.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

With dawn came the sun, streaming across the chilly barrens of Beech Hill. Also streaming—or rather, flitting—through the hedgerows were many small migratory birds, mostly yellow-rumps.

Song Sparrow.

But I also heard a raven, spied a Hermit Thrush, heard two kinglet species, admired bright-eyed sparrows.

What a lovely friggin’ fall-like (finally) morning.
