Red-tail

Red-tailed Hawk, Route 17, Rockport, Maine, 11 January 2018.

Red-tailed Hawk.

Thaw today. Slushy snow, but not hard walking. Big breeze, but not too cold. Heard two birds but didn’t see a one. Had to make a trip to Portland.

Thought to bring my camera, though, and just as dog and I headed out of town, I saw a handsome Red-tailed Hawk perched along the highway, surveying a field emerging from snow. Pulled over and got a shot or two just as it circled away.

Snowdog.

Welp, the bomb cyclone wasn’t all that bad—kind of just a run-of-the-mill blizzard. But no birds wanted to pose for me, so here’s a photo of Captain Jack, my good dog.

Sky Sightings

American Crow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 03 December 2017.

American Crow.

A clear, calm mid-morning, with temperatures in the low 30s (F). Most of my bird sightings were of the “flying away” variety—and then the day ended with a big, full supermoon.
