Interesting Sounds

Friday, May 5th, 2017
Eastern Towhee, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 05 May 2017.

Eastern Towhee.

Took a hike before the rains this morn and encountered more birds then I expected to—although I suppose, from the wind direction, it made sense there’d be arrivals this day. Two first-of-year species (parula and black-throated green). But the most fascinating part of the day was listening to all the towhee sounds.

Those birds can make a range of interesting sounds.

Eastern Phoebe.

Spring doesn’t really explode around here until May Day, then by Memorial Day weekend—full foliage. Still, I can see a hint of greening, like a sort of verdant halo.
