Blue-headed Vireo, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 18 June 2017.

Blue-headed Vireo.

This foggy morning, on my hike with dog, I came upon a pair of Blue-headed Vireos flitting silently in the trees. I hardly ever see this species any other time than early spring. It was a nice surprise.

Nature’s Little Gifts

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017
Eastern Phoebe, Rockport, Maine, 13 June 2017.

Eastern Phoebe.

This warm morning
I happened to see
a little female Ruby-throated Hummingbird
zip up to the iris patch
out my kitchen window
and hover a while.

Not long after,
on the way to our morning hike,
Jack and I both caught site of a young deer
—a yearling, looked like—
bounding gracefully
over hedgerows and across fields
right along side of us,
keeping pace for a couple hundred yards.
Fun for us both.

Then we saw a turkey.
