Many peregrines

Peregrine Falcons, Monhegan Island, Maine, 26 September 2014.

Peregrine Falcons.

One warm, sunny day five years ago, during my first visit to Monhegan for fall migration, as I was sitting at a picnic table eating pizza from The Novelty, five Peregrine Falcons flew over. I was sold.

This warm, sunny day, while sitting at a picnic table having pizza at the Novelty, seven peregrines flew over, circling lazily, or chasing each other. Others passed overhead in morning, and more in afternoon. A day of falcons. Unless you see it, pay attention to it, you can’t really appreciate the thrill.

In other news, I went with friends on a 45-minute around-the-island cruise. Seals, porpoises, eagles, Black-bellied Plovers.

Oh, yeah: and I got my first good look at this year’s vagrant Yellow-headed Blackbird.

Awoke well before sunrise this morning—which was nice, considering the lovely sunrise. Today seemed a little more birdy overall, although the Red-Headed Woodpecker seemed to have split the island. (Someone had done a little road grating right in front of its yard.) Walked through Cathedral Woods to Whitehead today. Saw the mother of all fairy houses. Also saw a seal floating on its back.

Big news today was the Yellow-headed Blackbird that showed up on the island. Big news for all the birders who saw (and didn’t) see it—especially, perhaps, my own self, since it was a lifer for me. However, back at the Trailing Yew later, as I popped into my room to change from shorts to jeans, the bird showed up all sunlit and photogenic on the tip of a spruce overlooking the yard. Dang it.
