This day began cloudless, but clouds soon moved in, bringing first a washboard sky—and then full overcast.

After the rain

The bay today, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 01 December 2016.

The bay today.

Big rains last night, this morning.
Sump pump workin’ overtime.
Cleared up at midday, so dog and I
hiked the soggy, streaming, puddling hill.

Bald Eagle, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 01 December 2016.

Bald Eagle.

Nice brisk air as the sun peeked through
the moving clouds, and the water
of the bay surged blue and gray with runoff.
Few birds—but one was an eagle.

Common Raven, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 November 2016.

Common Raven.

A period of overcast and rain this week. Dog and I hiked the soggy hill, encountered the usual suspects, then—on returning—added Common Raven and Horned Lark.

That made it an even dozen.
