Tea time

Eastern Towhee, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 03 May 2015.

Eastern Towhee.

The towhees were singing this morning at Beech Hill. “Drink your tea!” all over the place. I put together a little video.

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 03 May 2015.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

I also got a look (or listen) at three first-of-year species—including a Black-throated Green warbler, which was wholly unexpected and seemed kind of early, actually. Third warbler of the season.

Also got a nice look at a raven. Noticed a Great Blue Heron flying over only because it flashed a little shadow as it passed between me and the sun.

Sunny, a little breezy, warmer than it’s been in a while. I even went on an eighteen-mile bicycle ride this afternoon. Also a first of the year.
