Dark-eyed Junco, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 31 October 2014.

Dark-eyed Junco.

Buncha little birds flitting about the chilly barrens of Beech Hill this mostly overcast afternoon, most of them Yellow-rumped Warblers. However, I also heard a bluebird, saw a solitary goldfinch, watched a nuthatch for a while, and got a fairly decent photo of a Dark-eyed Junco.

Figured I’d post the photo of the junco.

Tonight will get nippy,
Tomorrow comes rain,
The time falls back Sunday,
Then snow blows again.
