Surprises

Common Yellowthroat.

While stalking a Blue-headed Vireo on a cool breezy hill this morning, I happened upon a pair of chickadees building a nest in a cavity in a tree about 20 feet off trail. I stood still for two or three minutes watching them fly back and forth, taking turns clearing debris and such.

I also got a decent photo of a Common Yellowthroat.

Singing in the Rain

Eastern Phoebe, 14 May 2017, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine.

Eastern Phoebe.

Today was a rainy day, and my hike with Jack was quick and wet. Still fun, though.

Eastern Towhee, 14 May 2017, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine.

Eastern Towhee.

For instance, we encountered a raven at the summit of the hill, surprising everybody. The raven veered away, then circled the summit, checking us out, then flew away, croaking.

Later, I stood a while and listened to a towhee singing in the rain.
