    Warm before the cold

    White-tailed Deer, near Meadow Street, Rockport, Maine, 25 November 2014.

    White-tailed Deer.

    Another warm day today. Not much sun, and not much wind, and a whole lot of 50s (F).

    Beech Nut, near Meadow Street, Rockport, Maine, 25 November 2014.

    Beech Nut.

    A whole lot of inside work, too, but in my late-afternoon hike with Jack, not a lot of birds. Eerily warm up there. Scenic, as always.

    Then, back at the office, four deer browsing in the grass out back—one adult and three younger ones.

    Supposed to get cold tonight and snow quite a bit tomorrow.

    Sweet respite

    Ruddy Duck (female), Chickawaukie Lake, Rockport, Maine, 23 November 2014.

    Ruddy Duck (female).

    A different sort of day. Nearly 40 degrees (F) when I first checked this morning, and the temperature continued on up to—eventually—50-something. Took Jack up to Beech Hill early, where a few others had the same idea. Not a lot of species there, but I did hear a bluebird and see a tree sparrow.

    American Coots.

    On the way to town (for a quick trip to the grocery store) is when things got interesting. Hadn’t been by Chickawaukie Lake for a while, and I noticed that seasonal coot invasion was underway. I also noticed a handful of diving ducks near the Route 17 turnout—so I pulled in. They were Ruddy Ducks, four or five of them, females and youngsters looked like. Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen any of those (if ever).

    Probably a hundred coots. A few goldeneyes. Geese at the swim Beech. Town birds in town.

    Did a little desk work but then decided 50-something was too good to pass up, so I went for a long bicycle ride. Felt great. Eighteen miles. En route, I added a bunch more species to today’s list—including a solitary Pileated Woodpecker near Route 1. I heard the bird first, then spotted it high in a tree, then pulled my bike over and dug my camera out of my backpack. I knew I’d stuck it in there for some reason.

    Tonight it’s cooling off a bit. I hear we’ll be getting a little rain.

    Bright Sirius

    Wednesday, November 19th, 2014
    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.
