Wistful crow, Camden, Maine, 05 December 2017.

American Crow.

A chilly and windy morning—but not too chilly, not too windy. There were bluebirds at Beech Hill. Also a Snow Bunting. Also the first Brown Creeper I’d seen in a while.

After my hike with dog, on an errand in Camden, I shared a moment with a wistful old crow.

American Crow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 02 November 2017.

American Crow.

Crows came out
this breezy November morning.
They held loud debates and vied
for political advantage.
One even bird managed to attain
the highest perch on the hill.

If you want to see some White-throated Sparrows on a stopover during fall migration, just head up to the summit of Beech Hill and tiptoe into the spruce grove. They’re up there.
