Before the rains

Hermit Thrush, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 21 October 2014.

Hermit Thrush.

Today I took an earlier hike with Jack than usual, what with a forecast of big rains. Gray were the skies as we ascended—along, saw no other humans (or canines) up there—and nervous was the feel of the air. All over the place flitted birds.

White-throated Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 21 October 2014.

Hermit Thrushes (several), perhaps a dozen Dark-eyed Juncos, a gazillion Yellow-Rumped Warblers, a couple Hairy Woodpeckers, a Northern Flicker. I also spied a Magnolia Warbler in drab fall plumage. Many, many sparrows.

I thought I saw a chippy, but I couldn’t be sure. I could, however, be sure of the White-crowned Sparrow I saw, and a few White-Throated Sparrows, and some Song Sparrows. Oddly, on the north stone wall of Beech Nut sat three yellow-rumps and a junco. Not sure what they were up to there—but I did notice some loose swarms of fair-sized, dark, flimsy-looking flies.

Not long after we got back in the car, the rains came.

Elsewhere, the flock of geese is still hanging out in the big green field on Meadow Street. Have seen them there nearly every day for a couple weeks.

Tonight it’s been raining like crazy off and on. Supposed to continue for three solid days.

Black-capped Chickadee, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 16 October 2014.

Black-capped Chickadee.

Took a quick, wet hike with dog today. Early afternoon. It was warm and wet—drizzling. Heavy rain earlier. Fog. And birds. Birds all over the place.

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 16 October 2014.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Flitting birds, zipping, Furtive birds. Secretive. Skittish. Most of them were sparrows.

Song, White-throated, Savannah, and White-crowned. Mostly Savannah, it seemed—thin notes from the undergrowth, little troops of sparrows slipping away into the fog. Jack and I would advance a ways and spook another little flock of them. Tseet! said the white-throats.

Didn’t get any sparrow photographs, though—no good ones, anyway. But there were almost as many yellow-rumps, and they’re always good for a photo.

A little sweaty

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 15 October 2014.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Had a work thang today. Took up nearly all my time—but I did manage a screamingly quick Beech Hill hike with Jack, my dog.

Warm. Seventies (F). Crazy warm. Lovely foliage under a gray sky. Got a photo of a yellow-rump showing it’s rump for a change. Crickets trilling still. Got a little sweaty up there.

Lovely cool evening. Cool enough to have the windows open.
