Oak, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 16 October 2013.


A gray day turned to a damp day turned to a foggy day with color around the edges. Couldn’t see a damn thing, Captain—well, except for a nuthatch on the big oak out back, and a young bald eagle that flew over my place against the gray sky, low and slow.

The rest of the day brought a few other species, but mostly today was a study of color and visibility.

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