European Starlings, Rockport, Maine, 29 October 2017.

European Starlings.

Sometimes, on a blue-gray morning

The Antics of Yellow-rumps

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 17 October 2017.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

A chilly, bright, season-appropriate morning lured me slowly up the hill. Kinglets two, sparrow one, and yet more Yellow-rumped Warblers. They chipped and flitted and chased and veered, the yellow-rumps did. They were fun to watch awhile.

Northern Flicker, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 13 October 2017.

Northern Flicker.

Missed photographing the Northern Harrier that appeared out of nowhere (as they typically do) this morning on the hill. But I did manage a photo of a flicker by simply standing there for a while.
