Crows, Crows

American Crow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 02 November 2017.

American Crow.

Crows came out
this breezy November morning.
They held loud debates and vied
for political advantage.
One even bird managed to attain
the highest perch on the hill.

Big Rains

Wild Turkeys, off South Street, Rockport, Maine, 25 October 2017.

Wild Turkeys.

We waited for a break in the rain. The wind did not abate. Heard a chickadee on the hill and caught sight of one Yellow-rumped Warbler. Spotted a sparrow that I couldn’t identify—which flitted away down the blueberry barren. Spied a swift, skittish thrush.

Elsewhere, I saw three crows, one herring gull, a small a flock of turkeys, and a large flock of starlings.

Still wet out there this evening.

Confused Bluebird

Eastern Bluebird, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 10 October 2017.

Eastern Bluebird.

This brilliant, sun-splashed morning after a mild night rain proved humid and warm—upper-70s (F) at the height of it—in an unseasonable patch of weather that brought out some bluebirds. I spotted several flitting about the roof of Beech Nut—and one even made a stop on the roof of a bluebird box.
