Alder Flycatcher.

The highlight of this morning’s hike came with the surprise appearance of a House Wren near the summit. But the portrait of the day belonged to a comely Alder Flycatcher.

Today on the hill, through about half our morning hike, Jack and I walked with Broad-winged Hawks. In particular, two or three young broadwings—screaming, circling high-high. I felt a feeling akin to being blessed.

However, I did get a fair photo of a one of a couple of Yellow-rumped Warblers, flitting around in the tips of the summit spruce grove.

What a day.
