Overcast Morn

Thursday, April 19th, 2018
American Goldfinch, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 19 April 2018.

American Goldfinch.

An overcast morning. Not too cold, not too breezy. Birds about, many birds. Singing, lurking, gathering nest material, mating. First-of-year Ruby-crowned Kinglets today.

No raptors, though, on this overcast morn.
