Yellow-rumped warbler.

Busy ol’ Monday. Cool outside, light winds. Thought about a bike ride but kept right on working instead. Until mid-afternoon, when I took Jack with me to take care of some errands. We ended up at Beech Hill.

White-crowned sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 September 2013.

White-crowned sparrow.

A few people there. A few dogs. A few birds—more than a few. Many yellow-rumps still, and another kinglet. Heard catbirds, towhees, flickers. Again white-throated sparrows appeared on the trail ahead of us. Three of them, this time.

Jays calling all over the place today. Funny how I hardly ever hear them in spring or early summer. They find their voices in fall.

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