White-faced Meadowhawk, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 14 August 2017.

White-faced Meadowhawk.

Got to the hill at 8:30 this morning, only to discover I’d forgotten my GoPro. False start! Returned at about 9 a.m., and commenced to hiking with dog. Three hawk species today (making that five species in the past two days). Also a bunch of dragonflies.

I kinda love dragonflies.

Song Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 06 June 2017.

Song Sparrow.

Summer is but a couple weeks away, yet this day dawned cold (46° F), windy, and gray. Those conditions made for a swift hike for dog and me, the better to keep warm. Birds were about—but skittish.

More seasonable weather will come soon.
