Saw a robin at Beech Hill this morning. Saw a robin across the road this afternoon.

Pretty sure they might be down from Canada.

Dark-eyed Junco, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 26 November 2017.

Dark-eyed Junco.

This chilly, cloudy morning turned into a chilly, sunny midday. During the cloudy part, not long after dog and I began our daily hike, we had an encounter with a little roadside flock of Dark-eyed Juncos.

Warm, Windy, Wild

Black-capped Chickadee, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 25 November 2017.

Black-capped Chickadee.

A few years ago, winter began on 02 November, with more than a foot of wet snow. Today, the temperature reached 50 degrees (F), and the winds blew hard out of the south. Few birds on the hill—crows mostly. I did encounter a couple of chickadees, though.

Still pretty warm tonight. Warm tomorrow, too, I hear.
