Song Sparrow (youngster).

On our early hike this morning, dog and I encountered a fair number of migrating birds—chiefly Yellow-rumped Warblers. Also watched various butterflies (sulphurs, mostly) and bees prowl the remaining wildflowers.

Clouded Sulphur.

Sparrows about still, and jays, and flickers, and that young blueberry-eating gull (at least I assume it’s the same one I’ve seen up there three times now, considering I’ve never seen another engage in such behavior during my thousands of Beech Hill hikes.

Notably, Blacklegged Ticks (a.k.a., deer ticks) made a sudden reappearance. They’ve never gone away, of course, just have attained the right stage of development at the right season with the right amount of warmth and wetness to emerge conspicuous. I pulled five off Jack today.

A brilliantly sunny day, warmish, calmish. We’re told to expect more of same tomorrow.
