Eastern Bluebird.

This mornings (mostly) solo hike left me with a list of a good variety of bird species—two tits, two woodpeckers, two corvids, thrush, hawk, bunting, warbler, and more. And tonight we’re having a little light wet snow.

Ostentatious Cardinal

Northern Cardinal.

A cold snap blew through overnight, and this morning first thing the temp was in the 30s (F). Other than crows, no birds felt like showing off at Beech Hill, but the resident male cardinal did make an appearance in my dooryard.

Just missed a distant shot of a pair of first-of-fall juncos, though.

A Rangy Skein

Skein of geese, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 16 October 2017.

Skein of geese.

Felt like fall today for a change: gray, windy, chilly, temperature dipping throughout the day. Emphasizing this point was the rangy southbound skein of Canada Geese I saw at the summit of the hill—tipped off by their voices.
