’Rumps Everywhere

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 14 October 2017.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

A road race that ended at Beech Nut happened this gray early morning, and I didn’t manage to list many birds early, so Jack and I returned this sunny afternoon to list a few more. As usual this fall, the numbers were mostly Yellow-rumped Warblers. ’Rumps were everywhere.

Confused Bluebird

Eastern Bluebird, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 10 October 2017.

Eastern Bluebird.

This brilliant, sun-splashed morning after a mild night rain proved humid and warm—upper-70s (F) at the height of it—in an unseasonable patch of weather that brought out some bluebirds. I spotted several flitting about the roof of Beech Nut—and one even made a stop on the roof of a bluebird box.

Oops.
