Soggy day

Eastern wood-pewee and red-eyed vireo, Beech Hiil Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 29 June 2013.

Eastern wood-pewee and red-eyed vireo.

More rain and humidity. Wetness, waterloggedness. The wettest year by far (so far) than any since I’ve lived in Maine. Something’s going on when it comes to the global climate, that’s for sure.

Veery, Beech Hiil Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 29 June 2013.

Veery.

Finally got out in it. Got up to Beech Hill. Walked all trails. So dim that photography was nearly impossible—but not completely so. In fact, I got some moody, blurry, ephemeral sorts of images—including one of a chasing pewee and vireo.

Thick fog at the summit. Also a Savannah sparrow chipping at Jack and me from the roof of Beech Nut.

Mosquitos swarming.

Dampness, mud, humidity.
