Sproing

Eastern Bluebird (female), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 20 March 2018.

Eastern Bluebird (female).

Today the equinox arrived. A nip in the air, bright sun, snow all around—but I needed the appearance of a bluebird to remind me it’s technically spring.

I like to call this time of year “sproing.”

Busy Birds

Sunday, February 25th, 2018
Black-capped Chickadee, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 25 February 2018.

Black-capped Chickadee.

Nippy and overcast this morning. The little birds must’ve predicted the forecast afternoon snow, because they were busy in the trees—flitting all over the place. Chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, woodpeckers, at least one Brown Creeper.

Grouse under my truck, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 25 February 2018.

Grouse under my truck.

Didn’t see Ruff the grouse at first, and felt kind of relieved to think he was safely off in the trees somewhere—but they I noticed him pecking around under my pickup.

It did in fact snow a little this afternoon.
