A little color

Northern Flicker, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 September 2014.

Northern Flicker.

The last day of September. Already. Cold and damp. A few birds—migrating or dilly-dallying—flitting nervously through and above the dewy foliage.

Maple leaf.

Busy day, work-wise. Got a nice, quick midday hike with Jack. The gray landscape is showing nice little yellow and red flames of color. This is my favorite time of year.

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