Between storms

Saturday, December 29th, 2012
Anticipation, Beech Hill, Rockport, Maine, 29 December 2012.


Clouded up today. Went out and chipped some ice, redirected some runoff. Came back in and edited for a while. Finally split the scene with Jack and took a hike up a snowy hill, just us two. A few birds around (bird voices mostly), and some nice overcast snow scenes. The pond seemed to be icing up down there, and I could see the leading edge of the new storm arriving in the vicinity of the Owls Head Light.

Blueberry field.

Good leg exercise, trudging through snow without snowshoes. Depending on how much new white stuff arrives, I might take ’em out tomorrow.

And, oh yeah: on our return, I swung by a big box store for a light bulb and saw a house sparrow flying around in there. Smart bird.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
