    Snow slush fog

    Sunday, January 4th, 2015
    Wintry pinnacle, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 04 January 2015.

    Wintry pinnacle.

    Heard the plows before I rose this morning. The snow had piled up, as forecast—and soon it began to rain lightly, and then the snow got slushy. Had breakfast, shoveled snow, then went with Jack to Beech Hill, where we were the first ones in the parking lot.

    One other person had hiked before us, I could see by their footprints. Very foggy up there what with all the now-slushy snow evaporating into the damp air. Saw some roadside birds, heard the voices of several others, including the chip of a yellow-rump.

    This afternoon, I worked at my desk downstairs. Gets dark in a hurry still.

    Waxwings, revisited

    Bohemian Waxwings, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 22 December 2014.

    This first full day of winter was not too wintry. Drippy, damp, not very cold. A busy day, though, with a narrow opening for my daily hike with dog.

    Saw a couple dooryard birds—cardinal and jay—prowling the tangles near the Beech Hill Road parking lot. Saw a gull fly over. Heard the (near-)daily flicker. Chickadees and nuthatches. And then, returning, I happened to spy another little clutch of waxwings preening on some bare twigs a little ways down the slope.

    Any day with Bohemian Waxwings is a good ’un.

    Christmas Count 2014

    Saturday, December 20th, 2014

    Today was our local Aubudon Society Christmas Bird Count day. Forty-four species for our group, and thirty-five for me this day. Highlights were a Clay-colored Sparrow, bluebirds, and a hundred forty-eight coots. Rather than throw a bunch of words at you, I’ll simply post some photos.
