    Bright Sirius

    Downy Woodpecker, near Meadow Street, Rockport, Maine, 19 November 2014.

    Downy Woodpecker.

    Today was a cold one—and, at first, a cloudless one. Eventually, a few small clouds showed up above the horizons, but the sun shone for the whole short photoperiod, essentially. In traveling around, I got a look at a Downy Woodpecker at work, a couple of Blue Jays in flight, and the usual other birds.

    Water crust.

    It was friggin’ cold up to Beech Hill. Two species up there, and ice on the trail.

    Tonight is cold and ark with stars and a breeze that keeps moving leaves from one pile to another. Been a while since I’ve seen bright Sirius.

    Long shadows

    Long shadow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 13 November 2014.

    Long shadow.

    Cool, clear day. Thirties (F). Quite a few passerines flitting about this morning, a Pileated Woodpecker on a high bare hardwood trunk at midday, three bird species on my mid-afternoon at Beech Hill, where a shallow sun cast long shadows on the trail

    Northern Flicker, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 12 November 2014.

    Northern Flicker.

    Foggy ol’ day today. Wet, drippy, warm. No, really—like, pretty darn close to 60 degrees (F) warm.

    Black-capped Chickadee.

    Busy ol’ day, too, getting ready for a wing-ding at work this evening. I managed to grab a mid-afternoon hike with dog. Mid-afternoon must’ve been the foggiest part of the day and, ironically, I saw all but one of the birds on my Beech Hill list—a jay, yammering in the middle distance, as jays tend to do. Also saw a turkey take off straight up in a little stand of hardwoods there. And a pigeon at the dump.

    Deer have been moving around, as they do this time of year. The other day I came upon a doe and youngster in the middle of the road in evening, and now I’m watching the roadsides.

    Late tonight, the sky has cleared off completely, and the temperature is headed down. And I saw Orion rising for the first time in a couple of seasons.
